About us

Here, you can find your place in an inspiring art school community; while our expert staff, studios & workshops support your individual journey.

HCA’s intimate scale lends itself to natural collaborations and distinctive creative groups. It's the ideal setting for you to discover alternative ways of looking at things. Students also experience an excellent amount of contact time with tutors in a forum which is small enough for your voice to be heard.

All students benefit from inductions to relevant workshops and studios. If your practice leads you down a new and inventive route; you are free to experiment using HCA’s great range of facilities. So, if you’re an animator who discovers you’d like to experiment with embroidery – you can! Many of the staff at HCA are also active practitioners in their own right, meaning they can offer you guidance as mentors, specialists and peers.

Whether you want to pursue art, media, design, popular music or performing arts, we have your future in mind.

Be collaborative, be curious, be bold, be creative, be you.
