Course information

With over 100 courses each term there is plenty of choice, whether you are a beginner wanting to learn the basics of drawing, or an experienced student needing studio time and the advice of an expert tutor. We also offer taster courses at the beginning of each term if you are at all uncertain about committing yourself to a full term. Also look out for our half term and summer school intensive courses over 3 – 5 days.

Taster Courses

At the start of the Spring Term we are running a series of one-off taster courses. Taster courses are particularly useful if you are in any way unsure about signing up and committing yourself to a course without knowing quite enough about its content and delivery style.  Each of the tasters is linked to a particular course which runs at the same time the following week. We are able to offer these courses at the reduced price of £12.
