Each course is specially designed for home study, allowing you to work at your own pace in the comfort and convenience of your own home.

Advantages of studying here

We offer a range of courses for home-study: something for everyone from the complete beginner to the experienced artist.Each course has it's own course tutor who will review submissions and give help, advice and encouragement as one artist to another. Course Artists are not teaching so much using their experience as successful artists to help others. For seventy five years our courses have helped tens of thousands of aspiring artists and illustrators to learn new skills and in many cases to develop their careers. We offer well proven, well written art courses in a variety of subjects, that really work.

Areas of specialisation

We have 22 courses, most of which are fine art courses, teaching drawing and painting skills to everyone, from complete beginners to expereinced artists looking to try new areas.The college offers a range of more than twenty courses, all very carefully written and complete in themselves. They are divided into easy-to-understand and follow study units. Supported by full illustrations, the study units progress gently and steadily giving students a thorough grounding in the techniques being demonstrated.
