Welcome to Hampstead School of Art

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.
