Our School

The aim of the London Art School is to encourage and support each student in order for them to discover : -

"In every human being there is an artist, and whatever his activity, he has an equal chance with any to express the result of his growth and his contact with life..."

Robert Henri, The Art Spirit

Whether you are an absolute beginner, a foundation student looking to build a portfolio for university or a practising artist looking to widen your skills and get to know and work with other artists, at London Art School we have the tutors, classes and facilities for you.

     

We are located in Brentford down the road from Kew Bridge Station, at the Watermans Art Centre overlooking the river Thames. 

In 2018 London Art School continues the time-honoured tradition of working artists demonstrating and passing on their skills to the artists of tomorrow. 

 

We look forward to welcoming you.
