Carmarthen School of Art has been providing Art education since 1854, being one of the first Art Schools set up in Britain following the Great Exhibition in Crystal Palace in London. The School has been continually evolving ever since, responding to social, creative and cultural developments and the changing needs of its students, industry and wider community. Our heritage is important to us and influences our School ethos.

The School is a friendly, dynamic and creative community with a real ‘Art School’ atmosphere; renowned for its inclusive culture and open door policy across departments. We know our students and strive to develop their individuality, ours is a balanced approach, supporting whilst challenging students. We have a national reputation for skill based teaching & learning underpinned by academic rigour and an emphasis on employability; developing knowledgeable, highly skilled creative practitioners for the future.

Situated in one of the most beautiful counties in Wales, we are well connected within the world of art and design; connected regionally, nationally and internationally through live projects, events, competitions, educational visits, alumni and industry links. The University of Wales Trinity Saint David validates our Art and Design degrees.

The college is committed to providing opportunities for young people to participate and experience art & design in a bespoke creative environment, offering programmes from levels 1 -6. In workshops, students will develop practical skills and become aware of the exciting educational and career opportunities that are available in the creative industries.
