Beatrice Lennie founded her School of Sculpture
after the B.C. College of Arts at which she was
working as an Assistant Instructor under Frederick
Varley and Jock Macdonald closed in 1935
due to financial difficulties.
Lennie's School of Sculpture offered a three-year course. A few years later
Lennie closed the school and began teaching at Crofton House School, a
position she held for a number of years.
