Study Abroad


City & Guilds of London Art School is a university-sector college. Students are able to access their tutors and technicians on a regular basis, and one-to-one teaching is a feature of the Art School, supported by seminars, lectures, and skills-based workshops.

We champion craft skills, the dialogue between the hand, eye, imagination and subject knowledge. Our learning and teaching practices weave together:

• learning through making

• art history and the history of ideas

• professional knowledge

• aesthetic judgement

• collaborative skills

• technical expertise

• the role of imagination

• critical skills

• connoisseurship

• embodied knowledge

• materials knowledge.



The Art School has been located since 1849 in one of Kennington’s fine Georgian terraces, and adjoining beautiful Cleaver Square.

Our studio spaces are generous while our technical facilities support the small scale of the Art School and our specialist activities. We focus on providing specialist facilities for ‘hand skills’, working with traditional processes such as stone and wood carving, intaglio printmaking, gilding, bronze casting and drawing. IT facilities are also available.
