As well as helping you develop the in-depth technical skills needed to take your art practice forward, you’ll be encouraged to think critically about the wider theoretical and historical contexts of contemporary portraiture and apply that knowledge to your practical work.
And to further enrich your study, you’ll have access to lectures and talks by eminent visiting artists, open access to our print studio, a session learning to sculpt a portrait head (and access to further sculpture classes) and can drop in to Open Life sessions on weekend mornings. You can also take advantage of free places on our other evening, weekend and short courses (These are available at the discretion of the Academy and subject to availability).
All academic students are able to take advantage of free places on the Academy’s public courses (evening, weekend and short courses). These are available at the discretion of the Academy and subject to availability.
