Opening 4th July and 5th July, our Graduate Show includes works by students who have studied on our three-year Fine Art Diploma, Figure Sculpture Diploma or Contemporary Portrait Diploma, students finishing our one-year Fine Art Foundation and students completing our two-year part-time Certificate.

This year our Graduate Show will take place across two different sites with two separate Private Views. Diploma students will be exhibiting at our Newington Library site with the Private View taking place on the 5th July, while Foundation and Certificate students will be exhibiting at Mermaid Court with the Private View taking place on the 4th July. Please come join us and take this opportunity to talk to and raise a glass to our emerging artists!

Our graduating students are proof of our commitment to equip all who study with us with the technical skills, creative insight and personal confidence needed to become practising artists. Our students have joined us from all walks of life with many coming to us from professional backgrounds. The decision to change paths in life can be an overwhelming one so we aim to give our students the structure and support required to make their dreams a reality. With a wide range of tutors, all of whom are professional, practising artists, higher contact-times with tutors than any other higher-education fine-art course in the UK and an emphasis on professional development, we are focused on ensuring our students are able to sustain art practices beyond graduation.
