Practical art

With the help of a part-time tutor you can pursue your own practical art in the Wentworth Studios on campus.

Active Arts


Towards the end of each year Active Arts holds an annual exhibition of members' work and anyone can submit work if they wish.

Art studios, based in Wentworth College, has supported students, staff and members of the University in the production of artwork for over thirty years.

Through the provision of studio space, equipment, materials and tutorial support, members have acquired practical artistic skills.


There are three permanent studios, printmaking, painting and ceramics, for use at any time.

Basic materials and equipment are provided and there are demonstrations and workshops to show members how to use the facilities and processes available.
