Cardiff Open Art School


Hello and welcome to Cardiff Open Art School.

It doesn’t matter if you’ve never picked up a pencil or a paintbrush, if you’re an experienced artist or designer or are preparing a portfolio to apply for a degree COAS’s classes and workshops can help you develop your creativity. They’re also an opportunity to know like-minded creative people while learning new skills and gaining confidence in your abilities.

This term we’re running our two popular Pottery classes again as well as our new Fashion Illustration and Experimenting with Paint - Beginners’ Painting classes along with much much more. We’ve also teamed up with FabLab Cardiff and Ffotogallery’s Diffusion Festival to run a wood block making and printing session on 13 May, so take a look at everything that’s on offer.

Our CSAD Summer Show of third year work starts on Saturday 27 May and runs through until 12 noon on Friday 2 June so come and visit that too.

Did you know that our students range from their late teens to their 80s, that many try out different classes each term as they want to learn about different creative techniques and that some love their classes so much that they join us as full time degree students!
