Welcome to The London Art College Art Courses Online

For eighty years The London Art College has run successful Distance Learning Art Courses. Originally described as a Correspondence Art College, then as a Home Study Art College, today we use online learning to reinforce more traditional methods to teach art. Offering 30 Painting and Drawing courses including Graphic Design, Illustration and Art history, all supported by personal tutors, we are one of the World's leading art colleges for Adult Learning art courses.

Each course is specially designed for home study, allowing students to work at their own pace in the comfort of their own home.

Students set their own timetable and decide when they are ready to submit work to the College.

We believe that painting and drawing skills can be acquired by anyone – with proper tuition and practice.
