Summer School

Our 2018 summer short courses took place on 16-27 July, and were greatly enjoyed by participants and tutors alike.

We will be running our Summer School again in July 2019, and will provide updated course information, dates, prices and booking details as soon as we can. Please check this page again later in the year or subscribe to our Summer School mailing list for updates –  and we hope you’ll join us in summer 2019.

Learn new skills and develop existing ones on a summer course

Our summer short courses are a unique opportunity to step inside our renowned Art School, and explore and develop your skills and interests with our expert tutors.

Class sizes are small, and our tutors make sure our intensive courses for adults are enjoyable and fun, as well as inspiring and informative. And as a student on one of our introductory courses, you’ll receive the same warm welcome that we extend to all our friends and students.

If you are one of our current students or a former student of the Art School, you’re eligible for 10% discount on all our summer courses. Just tick the Student and Alumni Discount box on the booking form.
