Course tutors are members of the GSA teaching staff or invited artists and designers drawn from a wider artistic field. Your tutor will offer one-to-one advice and guidance as well as demonstration and group discussion.
Studios & Workshops
Courses are held in the workshops and studios across campus that are also also used by full time students. These spaces range from studios in the Mackintosh Building and specialist technical workshops within the Fine Art and Design buildings.
Many courses include a life model. Life models are nude/unclothed and a level of studio etiquette must be followed (life room guidelines will be available for these courses). The model works to the direction of the tutor, involving short, moving or sustained poses. Models are clothed for portraiture classes. Photography is not permitted within the studio during a life class. If a life model cannot attend class at late notice due to unforeseen circumstances, a clothed model will be provided if possible.
You are asked to supply your own materials for your course, unless otherwise indicated. A materials fee has been included in some course fees (see course descriptions). Any materials used in excess will be your own responsibility. There is no discount on the materials included. You will be advised in your confirmation letter of recommended materials to bring along for the first class.
A branch of the Artstore is located on campus within the Haldane Building on Rose Street. Continuing Education students are eligible to receive a 10% discount on Artstore materials.

The Glasgow School of Art welcomes applications from people with disabilities and you are encouraged to consult with the Department to discuss specific needs. Please refer to the GSA's Disability Policy for more information. GSA is committed to supporting equal opportunities and our Continuing Education programme provides a teaching and learning environment which is friendly, conducive to study and free from distraction.
The aim is to ensure that everyone - regardless of race, gender, disability, age or sexual orientation is able to make most of their time at the GSA. It is the responsibility of the tutors and students to help achieve this goal.
