Summer School
Can I do a short course at City & Guilds of London Art School? 

Yes, we will be offering a number of 4 & 5 day-long summer courses in July 2024.

Which courses can I choose from?

We have summer courses teaching a range of specialist art and craft skills including stone and wood carving, drawing and painting, gilding and clay modelling.

How can I find out more about the courses?

You can find the full details here.

How old do I have to be to enrol on a summer school? 

Our summer courses are for adults aged 18 and over. There is no upper age limit.

Do I need to have experience to join a summer course?

No, all our courses are suitable for people with no experience in our specialisms. They are a great opportunity to try out something completely new to you.  Some of our courses are also suitable for those of you with some experience already. There is something for everyone.

How many people will there be in my class?

We aim to keep our classes small (like our Art School!). Class sizes vary, depending on the specialism.

Who teaches the courses? 

All our courses are taught by tutors from our degree courses.  As well as teaching, our tutors all have their own professional practice, and many are leaders in their fields.

Do I get a qualification at the end of this course?

No, these courses do not lead to a qualification but we can provide a certificate of attendance, if you have attended at least 80% of the course.

I am studying at a university outside the UK, and would like to earn credit during the summer. Is this possible at the Art School? 

Please talk to your academic advisors to secure their approval before you book your course. We are happy to liaise with them to enable your home institution to award credit for your short course.

You may also be interested in our semester  Study Abroad programme, which allows you to study for up to six months alongside our undergraduates.


When do I have to book my course?

We recommend you book your course as early as possible. Places are limited and our courses are very popular
