As a practitioners’ art school, we are committed to teaching essential practical skills that form the foundation of a career or adventure in the visual arts.
Our teaching artists lead by example and provide excellent studio-based tuition, putting you at the heart of a uniquely supportive environment, creating an inspirational relationship between knowledge and practice.
Our outreach and community programmes focus on taking art to those who cannot come to HSoA.
The HSoA team is driven by a shared vision to create an inclusive, supportive and inspirational environment where each and every student is free to explore, develop and realise their individual artistic voice.
As the school celebrated its 70th Anniversary year, British abstract painters Frank Bowling RA OBE, Alan Gouk and Francisco Gazitua became our first artist patrons since Henry Moore in 1947.
Our online gallery will host a unique collection of work to browse and buy from artists including:
Frank Bowling OBE RA
