Many colleges and universities offer art courses in London, and as these can vary widely in what’s offered, it’s important to do some research. The courses available literally cover every imaginable aspect of art, from portrait painting to graphic design and drawing cartoons. If you prefer to study art history, you can choose from classes covering Renaissance art to 20th century painting, and everything in between. As well as the cost of the classes, look at the curriculum in detail, as well as the class size and qualifications and teaching style of the lecturers. Regardless of the area of study you choose, London is the perfect place to take an art course as it is home to several of the world’s great galleries. It’s difficult not to be inspired when visiting such places as the National Gallery, Tate Gallery and the Tate Modern.
