The Wren Hall

The Wren Hall, Salisbury The Choristers School, which was founded in 1559, was remodelled in the early 1700’s in a graceful Queen Anne style to provide a classroom and dormitories for the Cathedral choristers, generations of whom received an education within its walls until 1947. The Sarum Studio continues this educational ethic.

Light and space are the most important requirements when drawing and painting from life, and the East/West orientation of the hall provides ideal natural light throughout the day. The hall is also big enough to provide optimal working conditions, with room enough for students to stand back at the proper distance to review their work.
