A Real Art School

City & Guilds of London Art School welcomes students from all backgrounds, age-groups and walks of life. We believe that the rich diversity of our community is fundamental to our character and to our mission to foster excellence in art and craft. It informs the ways we help our students succeed in their learning aspirations and progress on their educational journeys, producing both inspired practitioners and confident professionals in the fields of Conservation, Fine Art, Historic Carving and Art and Design.

• We are a small, specialist institution, committed to providing an inclusive and supportive environment for each and every applicant and student, to enable everyone to participate fully in all aspects of Art School life, to be inspired by the education we provide and to derive the greatest possible benefit from it.

• We do this in many different ways:We treat each student as an individual, each with her/his own talents and strengths, and tailor the design and delivery of our courses to enable each student to make the most of their potential and exceed their own expectations. Read More.

• We are committed to small group and 1-1 teaching, which enables students to receive regular feedback on their work, that is both scheduled and formal as well as informal and as required. We believe that this is the most effective way to support student learning. Read More.

• Our courses are taught by practising artists, craftspeople, designers and conservators who themselves come from a wide range of different backgrounds and are passionately committed to passing on their skills to a new generation. They also facilitate access for our students to a wide range of employers and live projects in the creative industries and cultural institutions across London, the UK and beyond.

• We provide each student throughout their course with both structured tutorial support for their academic studies and also access to their own pastoral tutor in case of personal difficulties.

•We provide both practical and academic support where possible for people with a disability or learning difficulty, or who have other needs such as religious observance or parenting requirements, to enable them to participate in Art School educational and social life alongside their peers.

• We encourage applications to the Art School from all who wish to benefit from undertaking one of our courses. We ensure, through our commitment to recognise and accredit previous learning or other experience, equal consideration for those who do not meet the formal entry requirements.

• We provide a significant number of bursaries and scholarships to help those who may have difficulty funding their studies, and once enrolled, our students can apply for funding towards materials and study travel.  Read More.

We are also continually looking for ways to engage with our local and the wider community through our public facing activities, including through our annual degree shows and participation in London Craft Week, London Open House weekend, ‘Creative Dimension Trust’ workshops and other such initiatives. We hope through these activities not only to enrich the lives of our neighbours but also to attract potential new artists, craftspeople and conservators who may be excited and inspired by our students’ work and wish to study themselves.
