Cardiff Open Art School


Hello and welcome to Cardiff Open Art School. We’re now settled into our new home at the Llandaff Campus and are delighted with the feedback we’ve had from our students so we’re excited to launch our new programme for Summer 2016.

It doesn’t matter if you’re an experienced artist or designer, are preparing a portfolio to apply for a degree or Foundation programme or if you’ve never picked up a pencil before, we’ve got something to offer you so the courses and workshops are a great way of trying out new skills or for further developing your practice.

Our CSAD Summer Show of third year work starts on Saturday 21 May at 12 noon and runs through until 12 noon on Friday 27 May so do come and have a look if you can. We’ll also soon be posting information on drawing, painting, ceramics and printmaking Summer School classes that will run between Saturday 6 and Sunday 21 August so watch this space!
