a variety of courses
We have a wide range of qualifications, from Access Courses, Apprenticeships and A Levels to Undergraduate Degrees. We also run IB Visual Arts as part of the IB Diploma. All of our tutors are experts in their fields, whether silversmiths, illustrators or interior designers, and will give you the support and tuition you need to achieve your outstanding potential.
Studying with us, you’ll have access to industry-standard studios and vibrant exhibition space in the purpose-built specialist White building at Truro College and the refurbished Nanjizal building in Penwith, which offers space, light and fantastic views over the Penwith Campus and Mounts Bay beyond. Some of our adult part-time courses are also run in the inspirational setting of the Penzance School of Art, a beautiful building dating back to the mid-19th century.
learn and create
Through the study of art history, theory and techniques, you’ll be encouraged to explore and experiment with different ideas in a way that will spark your creativity and energise your practical work.
