Art courses for all abilities
Students set their own timetable and decide when they are ready to submit work to the College - you can enrol and start your course whenever you wish. You can study around your work and family commitments at times that suit you. Our art courses can be done either via the post or online - either way we endeavour to make it as simple as possible for you.
All of our art courses are specially designed for home study, allowing students to work at their own pace in the comfort of their own home. We have students from over over 75 countries studying with us online - there is no college attendance. We believe that painting and drawing skills can be acquired by anyone – with proper tuition and practice.
How do our art courses work?
Our courses are carefully constructed learning programmes, comprising of progressive self-study units, leading to the opportunity to make submissions at various points on the course.
Our courses can be viewed online in full as well as being mailed to you in hardcopy. This means you can have access to the course even when away from home.
Coursework can be submitted to the college online in 'The Art Room' via scans or digital photographs, or alternatively via the mail as postal submissions.
Students are each assigned a personal tutor who will review and critique submissions providing tailored help and advice to students. Tutors seek to get the best out of their students as one artist to another
