Meet the Paintbox School of Art Team

Jemma Derbyshire and Lynsey Connachan set up Paintbox School of Art in 2013
following a workshop they ran together in the Highlands.

Seeing a need for comprehensive Art teaching in remote areas, they began offering a programme of workshops, classes and residential courses across Scotland.
