London Art College has been running distance learning art course since the 1930's, so our courses are tried and tested. 

All our courses are home student courses and we have been helping our students develop their artistic skills from the convenience of their own home for many years.

Work can be submitted either via digital photographs or scans to our online submission area or through the post.  The choice is yours.


We are entirely a distance learning college with students based all around the world.  Coursework can be submitted either online or through the post.  We also have an active student forum where all our students can meet online.

Student story

Dear LAC, I started Illustrating Children’s Books Diploma Course with enthusiasm but a bit skeptical about how much a distance course could help me improve my drawing / painting skills and teach me to illustrate picture books. It took me more than a year and a half to finish my course in my spare time and today I can say that the course has been beyond my expectations. It has been a delightful journey and a great experience which has inspired me to go on learning illustration.


Open days

As we are entirely a distance learning college we do not have open days.  Have a look at our student gallery here if you would like to see examples of student work.
