As a practitioners’ art school, we are committed to teaching essential practical skills that form the foundation of a career or adventure in the visual arts.
Our teaching artists lead by example and provide excellent studio-based tuition, putting you at the heart of a uniquely supportive environment, creating an inspirational relationship between knowledge and practice.
Our outreach and community programmes focus on taking art to those who cannot come to HSoA.
The HSoA team is driven by a shared vision to create an inclusive, supportive and inspirational environment where each and every student is free to explore, develop and realise their individual artistic voice.

Fantastic PV for 'di·chot·o·my' - an exhibition of images by Michael Jacobs at the HSoA Gallery last night.
Including over 30 new works, which explore the breadth of Jacobs' practice and often his relationship with Scottish landscape, its poetic juxtapositions equally evocative and engaging, the exhibition runs until 19 October.
