Find out more about the TEF.

Develop your skills as an artist through studio work and one-to-one tuition at Cambridge School of Art. Learn about art theory and techniques, and develop an advanced understanding of contemporary fine art practice. In 2015, 95% of our students were satisfied with their course (National Student Survey). This course will equip you with the skills and knowledge you need to succeed as an artist. Through seminars and written work, you’ll develop an understanding of art theory and technique. You’ll also specialise in a particular area: you might focus on modern media such as photography, digital imaging or video art; or more traditional media like painting, drawing, sculpture or printmaking. Supported by our expert staff, who are all practising artists, you’ll develop your own visual language and exhibit your work at each stage of the course. There’s the chance to create installations for the Cambridge Botanical Gardens and to organise solo exhibitions around the city. As well as your practice, you’ll develop your understanding of debates about the nature of art: how it can be evaluated, what it might represent, and the meanings it might convey. From this you will form an appreciation and enjoyment of fine art that will last a lifetime.
