Short courses at Chelsea College of Arts provide students with an environment where they are free to try new things and nurture their talent. All our tutors are experts in their fields and can draw on the resources of long-established art and design schools.
Our courses cater for every level of ability from the eager novice, to the savvy intermediate, to the most professional. You may want to discover the right medium for your creative urges, push the limits of what you already know, or take a whole new direction.
We also offer a wide range of unique courses for kids and teens aged 11 to 18 years-old who wish to explore their creativity.
Courses are taught flexibly – in the daytime, evening, or at weekends. We also provide customised training - creating unique courses to suit your schedule and requirements.
