Kingston School of Art seeks to breakdown disciplinary boundaries, whether that is between science, healthcare, engineering or the social sciences. The School is dedicated to risk-taking, innovation and experimentation with a commitment to collaborating with local, national and global brands and by participating in national and international projects, showcases, competitions and symposia. Teaching is guided by two principles: that students learn through the process of making and that they are already critical practitioners who therefore contribute to the development of their subject area.
The School has some of the best workshop facilities in the UK. Each student has access to all the facilities available, encouraging interdisciplinary thinking, making and working. The workshops have the latest industry standard equipment and include 3D design, digital media, fashion and printmaking. Students can utilise studios and editing suites for photography, animation and filmmaking. There is also investment in traditional technologies such as letterpress and bronze casting.
