Student Art Prize 'Art School'!

Brand new for 2020/21, the “Art Prize Art School” offers a programme of free online artist workshops, talks, films and resources all aiming to inspire students to make their own art, and also to apply for the Student Art Prize 2020/21.

We launched the Student Art Prize in 2019 to celebrate the wonderfully talented student artists here at Durham, and give them further opportunities to have their work displayed and appreciated. Although the University currently does teach any practical art courses, we hope this “Art School” will become a regular part of the student art programme, supporting students to create new work, hone their artistic skills and support their own mental wellbeing.

A limited number of Art Packs, containing creative materials to get you started, are also available and can be posted. Email to secure your pack before they run out!

The Art School can be accessed via the University’s arts festival website,

Open to all, you don’t need to be a student to get involved!
