Art Academy London is a young and innovative art school, offering courses that are designed and delivered by expert, practising artists. Situated in the heart of London, near to the iconic City and Borough Market, we were founded in 2000 to offer something different: the best of an old-school atelier combined with the vibrancy and diversity of a contemporary art school. Since then, we've helped train around 20,000 people across our different courses. 

As an art education charity, we’re passionate about championing art for all, and we think this inclusive approach creates a very special environment. We offer both physical and online art courses for all levels of skill and need – from a BA or Foundation Degree, to eveningweekend and short courses. We also provide support with bursaries and special education needs, and our community outreach programmes help make art education accessible in Southwark and the surrounding area. 

What also sets us apart from other art schools is our intensive and hands-on teaching approach: we keep our class sizes small, so our tutors can provide tailored tuition and ensure that everyone is nurtured and challenged to become the best artist they can be. We don’t define our students: we give them the skills to define themselves.
