Student Art Prize 'Art School'
Our ‘Art Prize Art School’ offers a programme of free artist workshops, talks, films and resources to inspire you to apply for the Student Art Prize. Although the University does teach practical art courses, the ‘Art Prize Art School’ has become a regular part of the University’s student art programme, supporting you to create new work, hone your artistic skills and support your mental well-being.
A limited number of Art Packs, containing creative materials to get you started, are also available as part of the ‘Art Prize Art School’ programme.
