The Art School Experience


Kingston University’s Faculty of Art, Design & Architecture started life as Kingston School of Art in the 1890s. Currently ranking in the top 10 art and design schools in the UK, we now enjoy an international reputation.


Our focus is that of blending traditional craft with the latest technology. We are able to offer you the Art School Experience, a range of short courses developed and taught by our expert staff delivered in the evenings and during the summer. No weekend courses are currently offered.


Whether for professional development or leisure, our vast portfolio of courses will provide you with the perfect way to spend your spare time. Courses take place at the Knights Park Campus in Kingston, which offers outstanding facilities and a great environment to study.


You can socialise and discuss projects with other students in the wonderful surroundings of the Hogsmill River.
