Study here and you’ll be taught by highly skilled tutors and supported by expert technicians. Our commitment to our students is second to none, in workshops, studios and beyond.
Our college has strong links with the wider community. We run a busy national and international programme of visiting artists, exhibitions, public events and partnership activities. As a student here you’ll be making connections with artists, industry and potential employers from day one.
Many art colleges are phasing out traditional crafts such as print or analogue photography to focus more on digital methods. While we have some of the best digital courses and equipment in the country, we’re also constantly developing and improving our traditional art courses.
To illustrate our commitment, we’ve invested in a new specialist art, craft and digital design centre. Phase 1 opened in September 2013 and costing almost £8M, these state-of-the-art ceramics, glass and digital design workshops include a range of facilities such as 3D printing and laser cutting.
As an independent specialist Art College since 1856, our aim is to provide a distinctive, innovative and supportive learning community in contemporary arts practice; to add value to the cultural, social and economic life of Plymouth and the South West region; and to develop our distinctive profile of our work nationally and internationally.
