The Art Block is a purpose-built suite of studios where drawing, painting, print-making, textiles, photography, ceramics, sculpture and art history are studied.  It has been developed around an existing large general purpose studio, with the addition of a digital photography suite and a ceramics/sculpture studio.  All the studios are well resourced for the delivery of courses in the various specialist art disciplines and have recently been upgraded to include access to a new Mac network. The annual exhibitions within the area reflect the tremendous achievement of our staff and students and are a constant source of pride.
