A place of creativity, learning, and intellectual freedom

The East Anglian School of Art was an alternative and progressive art school that established the education of artists such as Lucian Freud, Maggi Hambling and Lucy Harwood. Artists Cedric Morris and Arthur Lett-Haines ran the school from their charming sixteenth-century farmhouse, Benton End, known by locals simply as ‘The Artist’s House’. The students who attended the East Anglian School of Painting and Drawing at Benton End attested to its progressive way of life where visitors ‘could garden and work and talk, and where students of all ages could work alongside them.’
