Art courses for all abilities
Students set their own timetable and decide when they are ready to submit work to the College for feedback- 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 thoughtfully crafted for home study, enabling students to progress at their own pace from the comfort of their homes while still benefiting from tutor feedback on their coursework. We are proud to have students from over 75 different countries worldwide studying with us online, eliminating the need for physical college attendance. We firmly believe that anyone can enhance their painting and drawing skills with the right guidance and practice.
How do our art courses work?
Our courses are carefully constructed learning programmes, comprising of progressive self-study units, with the opportunity to make submissions of coursework to a tutor for critique 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.
Each student is 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.
