Our skill-oriented course, which imparts representational drawing techniques, has its roots in the great classical painting traditions of Europe.

If you are interested in advancing your artistic abilities through dedicated training and instruction, we encourage you to enroll in our program.
Why Study with SSCA?
The Scottish School of Classical Art is deeply committed to supporting students of all skill levels in achieving their artistic goals. Our program offers a range of study options, including part-time, full-time, evening, and short- and long-term courses and workshops. Our core program is divided into three levels, each comprising a series of studies that can be completed at the student's own pace with the support of one-on-one critiques. Our adaptable teaching method allows us to accommodate different schedules and needs, ensuring that all students receive the highest quality instruction.
Through our program, students learn to represent the human figure using a range of complex concepts and methods, including gesture, design, hue, chroma, value, and anatomy. They begin by working with materials such as graphite and charcoal and eventually progress to using full color palettes in oil paint. Our constructive approach to drawing, which involves comparative measurement and sight-size techniques, helps students develop the skills and knowledge needed to create believable visual impressions of the figure without relying heavily on the model. By providing manageable steps and a flexible tuition schedule, we empower our students to become expert problem solvers and masters of their craft.
