The Art Academy offers an unrivalled selection of courses for individuals who want to develop their skills and ideas, whether they have no previous instruction, or are returning to art school to further develop their skills.
Our Part Time courses are usually one day a week (10am– 5pm) in term time, lasting from two to ten weeks. We run courses in: painting, drawing, printmaking, photography & video and sculpture. Some have a specialist focus, while others are more broad-based. Students can take one stand-alone course, or a combination. Each course is a component which can be built into a longer-term, progressive programme of study.
Our tutors are professional artists chosen for their expertise in each area of study. With class numbers kept to a maximum of 15, the tutor has plenty of time to give individual and detailed attention to each student.
Material packs can be purchased with some of our courses. Please check the details of the individual class. You can also buy an Acrylic Painting, Oil Painting or Drawing Pack individually on our Materials Page.
Please note, our courses are only suitable and available for students 18 years old and above. If you are 17 and keen to apply to a particular adult course, please ring the office and in some instances we may be able to accommodate you. We also have variety of courses specifically designed for under 18’s as part of our Young Artists programme.
