Cass Fine Art

"We teach fine art, we teach curating and introduce students to the best professionals, the best artists, the best art teachers they’ll ever come across, at a superb location in central London. " Rosemarie McGoldrick, Head of Cass Fine Art.


Cass Fine Art

Cass Fine Art is based in modern, purpose-built art studios, opposite the Whitechapel Gallery in London’s East End; a cultural quarter famous for its fringe and contemporary art galleries. 

The Fine Art courses offer practice-based studios that set out to prepare you for your future career whether it’s as an artist, curator or filmmaker. You will be taught by artists, professional practitioners and industry experts. With support to develop the specialist technical, conceptual and professional skills required for future practice in your chosen subject. 

Working in a creative and lively environment, where cross over and collaboration are actively encouraged, students participate in studio based practice and ‘live projects’. Public screenings and exhibitions offer valuable opportunities to engage with industry partners and professional contexts as are part of our culture and ethos. 

Curating the Contemporary is a two year Masters course which concentrates on professional gallery curating and display, in partnership with the Whitechapel Gallery. Year round opportunities to curate exhibitions and spaces offer ample chance to gain crucial practical experience at a professional level.
