"This is an enjoyable and rewarding course which provides exciting engagement with current art practice. It allowed me to develop my own approach to the discipline of painting, equipping me with both discipline-specific skills, and a range of transferable ones, too. It provided me with the experience and confidence to go on to my MA."
"I was surprised that I took so much from my time at The Cass; the lecturers are incredibly engaged, the weeks are very focused and the studio sizes are fantastic."
