Then Putney School of Art and Design is the place for you. Sign on for Summer Courses from an amazing range that are on offer.
Putney School of Art and Design was originally founded in 1883, and has been in Oxford Road, Putney since 1895. The main benefactor of the original Victorian school was Sir William Lancaster, an eminent local politician and philanthropist.
The school offers art and design courses including painting, drawing, pottery, photography, sculpture, printmaking as well as more specialised courses including the part-time Foundation Diploma in Art & Design, family learning for parent and child working together, and courses for young people aged 14-17 years.
The school has a superb life drawing studio on the first floor, complete with vast north-facing windows and a vaulted wooden ceiling. The school has developed and gradually expanded since 1895. It now has six studios designed specifically for painting, printmaking, drawing, ceramics and more recently, digital design.
With its roots firmly in the local community, excellent transport links have helped it to attract students from all over London and beyond. The school receives continued support and encouragement from The Friends of Putney School of Art and Design, an independent, registered charity.
