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.

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.


We are currently planning the final details of our 2019 Summer School portfolio, which will be based on our successful 2018 summer courses.

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