2000 - ?

Art Academy London was founded in 2000 by artist Tanya Russell (1955-). The Art Academy blends skills-based art education with contemporary processes and theory to help students produce a rich, sustainable practice. Their unique hands-on teaching approach offers the highest number of contact hours of any higher education art school in the UK across their academic courses. They offer art courses for all levels of skill and need, from a B.A. or Foundation Degree, to evening, weekend, and short courses. They also provide support with bursaries and special education needs, and their community outreach programmes help make art education accessible in Southwark and the surrounding area. They relocated to a prestigious new building; Triptych adjacent to Tate Modern forming a part of JTRE Londonís Triptych Bankside development. Art Academy London is approved by The Open University as an appropriate organisation to offer higher education programmes leading to Open University validated awards. Tutors include Perienne Christian and Frederic Morris and Suffolk artist students who studied at Art Academy London include Helen Bartholomew and Janine Reeves.
