Summer School

Discover new talents, foster existing skills and develop your creative interests in a fun and supportive setting.

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.

We are excited to introduce two new courses for Summer School 2019 – Etching Fundamentals and Calligraphy for Beginners and Improvers.
