Student life here centres on an art school community of collaborative thinkers and makers. Everyone is interested in each other's work and the ideas that spring from cross-over and co-operative working. In the crit or the workshop, staff and students work in an inclusive environment.
We believe that understanding and innovation are stimulated by making tangible objects. Our staff are themselves active professional practitioners and our workshop facilities are unrivalled in the region. Everyone is able to find their unique creative path.
Kingston School of Art aims to make every student industry-ready. Professional skills are taught alongside the academic rigour of research and theory. We offer live projects and interaction with leading thinkers and practitioners. Employers therefore know our students are a reliable choice.
Kingston School of Art is unique in offering a close community in an attractive town, where friends and colleagues live nearby, sharing student life and creative conversations, while London's world-leading galleries, museums and creative businesses are 30 minutes away.
We love the continuum of change. All our teaching and making looks at traditional and contemporary techniques, understanding that the creative industries change all the time. We prepare students for jobs that don't exist yet...
