About Putney School of Art and Design
Putney School of Art and Design offers art and design courses, including painting, drawing, pottery, photography, sculpture, printmaking as well as more specialised courses such as our Art and Design Diploma. There are courses for beginners, experienced students, and mixed ability sessions. We also run family learning for parent and child working together, and courses for young people aged 14-17 years old.
The school has a superb life drawing studio on the first floor, complete with vast north-facing windows and vaulted wooden ceiling. The school has developed and gradually expanded since 1895, apart from a brief break during the war years. It now has six studios designed specifically for painting, printmaking, drawing, ceramics and more recently, digital design.
With its roots firmly in the local community, excellent transport links have helped us to attract students from all over London and beyond. We receive continued support and encouragement from The Friends of Putney School of Art and Design, an independent, registered charity.
