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.
We are proud to be the oldest, non profit, art-making and learning centre in North London.
When you consider which charities you will be supporting next, please consider HSoA. The support of our patrons, benefactors and donors enables us to extend our offering by creating new art based cultures, delivering inspiring learning and strengthening our community.
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.
