Distance Learning Art Courses

Welcome to 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 e-learning to reinforce more traditional methods to teach art. Offering more than twenty Painting and Drawing courses together with Graphic Design, Illustration and Art history, all supported by your personal tutor, 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.

Courses are carefully constructed learning programmes comprising progressive self-study units leading to the opportunity to make staged submissions of work at various points on the course. The courses are available to be viewed online as well as being sent out in hardcopy. This means you can have access to the course even when away from home.

Coursework can be submitted to the college via scans or digital photographs using our online submission area, although we still welcome postal submissions.

Students are assigned a personal tutor who will review and critique submissions providing help and advice between submissions as needed. Tutors seek to get the best out of their students as one artist to another. View our full list of Art Correspondence Courses arrow
