We're really happy to announce that we reached our target! Thank you all for the pledges that you made and if Space Hive haven't already been in contact then they will be soon about collecting your donations. It's incredibly kind that so many of you have wanted to support us with the transformation of the old Newington Library. We'd like to particularly thank the Mayor's office for their large contribution that really made this possible. The doors are already open and so please do come and visit. We are currently hosting the incredibly well received Andy and Peter Holden "Natural Selection" exhibition run by Art Angel. This is only on for a couple more weeks and closes on the 26th November. We are already running courses from the building and our Foundation and Third year diploma students are using the studios. We'll be running a range of short courses including Young Artists (http://artacademy.org.uk/young-artists/) as well as evening and day time courses too. (http://artacademy.org.uk/evening-classes/) Finally it's been a very busy few months for us and one of the major reasons we've been looking for more space is that we can final announce that from September 2018 we'll be running a BA in Fine Art (subject to validation). This is a huge achievement for us and one that we are all incredibly excited about. To find out more visit http://artacademy.org.uk/fine-art-ba. Thanks again everyone and we look forward to seeing you soon.
