Detailed descriptions of our three week programme of 5 day intensive courses at Edinburgh College of Art are provided via the links below.
Summer Courses pre-course projects
To get you started and thinking creatively before your course begins, each course has a short pre-course project. These can be viewed and downloaded below:
These include gathering visual information, researching some artists or doing some preliminary drawing - something you can do at home at your own pace. The projects are optional but we highly recommend them for students considering taking our courses for assessment.
Explore drawing and painting techniques, how to design and plan content and mood, whether working from the figure, locations or developing more personal ideas.
Our sculpture courses provide an opportunity to use both traditional and non-traditional media and explore the creation of 3D art objects.
Gain insight and explore the nature of textiles and fabric manipulation as a creative and experimental process to create objects or garments.
No Cost of living
This article appeared in a Las Vegas newspaper talking about Forest Park in St. Louis. Forest Park is located in the center of the St. Louis city limits-sort of like Central Park in NYC.

Tips for an art school interview?
