Advanced Art Practice Courses - Online & in London

City Lit Advanced Practice is home to our advanced courses from across all subject areas in Visual Arts. In many cases, this means well established courses of a year or longer, with outstanding reputations for preparing students for study at Masters level, or for careers as creative practitioners. Equally, some of our advanced courses are short, intensive workshops, focused on specific aspects of professional practice. The advanced level of study and focus on professionalism are the common characteristics of all advanced practice courses.

We have several new courses, recently launched, with more in development, that build on our long-standing fine art and contemporary craft provision to bring traditional practices up to date and ensure learners have the relevant skills for the contemporary creative industries. We are also introducing new courses in contemporary media and communications-based creative practices, to ensure that our advanced provision continues to provide alternatives to the mainstream higher education route across a wide range of subjects.

In addition to our expanding range of advanced long courses, a new and growing range of advanced professional practice workshops will be available (from October 2020), aimed at providing support, skills and context, and developing communities of practice. These workshops can be taken individually, according to need or interest, or as complementary components of your own, self-designed modular course. Alongside our subject specific courses, these will provide you with the skills, knowledge and connections you need to take your advanced creative practice forward.

Many of our courses are delivered online. For more information about our live online courses, please see our guide to online learning.
