Art & Design

We are passionate about the arts at Mary Ward and have a vibrant department which offers a wide range of courses suitable for all levels and motivations. Whether you want to learn a new skill, discover your creativity and make friends, or gain a qualification, develop your practice and start a career in the creative industries, we have a course for you.

Our team of dedicated tutors are practicing artists, designers and crafts people who enjoy sharing their enthusiasm, skills, and experience with others. They will expertly guide you on courses that can take the whole group through projects side by side or encourage you to develop your own projects and ideas in an informal and friendly environment.  Come and visit our spacious and well-equipped studios and art rooms, where we have everything you will need to get started.
