Welcome to Hampstead School of Art

The school’s history is embedded in the tradition of direct observation, through drawing, painting and sculpture. Applied arts are practised at a high level of craftsmanship.

Hampstead School of Art (HSoA) is an independently resourced charity and relies on the dedication, enthusiasm and hard work of its tutors and staff and is not reliant on outside funding. We believe that everyone has a creative voice.

The school is non - selective in its weekly courses.

Foundation Diploma students are part of our own accreditation in line with level 4 national standards. The students are encouraged to become creative and thoughtful practitioners, with a knowledge of art history and a facility for critical appreciation.

HSoA also provides a vital community service, through art learning and studio practice, as well as our unique community outreach projects.
