Here at The Art Academy we offer some of the finest quality art tuition to develop the skill and creative insight you need to develop your vision. We believe art is best taught in the environment of a true artistic community, one that is warm and non-hierarchical, which nurtures and stretches you. Where you can learning from practicing artists, your peers and wide-ranging creative stimulus
We believe in putting skills at the heart of contemporary art training. To succeed as an artist, you need to develop your own voice and that depends on finding the language that will help you express it. That’s why we balance technique with critical investigation and pride ourselves on the unrivalled tutor contact time we provide, that will help you find your voice.
We have high standards and a robust, critical but positive approach. We want you to be surprised by the work you make and proud of the artist you become. The Art Academy is a close knit community so you’ll get lots of support along the way. On our long courses we develop your ability to survive as a professional artist when you leave us, and we don’t shy away from teaching you how to market yourself and sell your work.
I look forward to welcoming you to one of our open days, when you will be able to ask questions, see the studios in action and get a sense of the very special atmosphere yourself.
