“I am delighted to announce the foundation of the Aldeburgh Academy, a natural addition to the long history of creative innovation here in Aldeburgh. To have
David Baldry as Director of the Art School is invaluable.
He and his team of lecturers and tutors are exceptionally well qualified to provide university standard teaching, which we can offer at a fraction of the price. Based at the Aldeburgh Beach Lookout, the courses may also take place at several inspiring locations across Aldeburgh and surrounding villages.” Caroline Wiseman, Aldeburgh Beach Lookout, founded in 2010 as a catalyst for the inspiration of artists, poets, writers and thinkers.
"A long weekend that stimulated and
challenged me...whilst making me feel that I was on holiday
"I found David's professional input
inspiring and Linda was an excellent
teacher, supporting us to challenge our ideas and produce work in many different ways. My fellow students were fantastic too, all supportive
"I really enjoyed the course, and as a beginner, I found it particularly good, as it gave me a taste of so many different things. It really opened up a new world for me and has certainly inspired me to explore my creative side more."
