Ruth Prowse School of Art

Ruth Prowse School of Art was founded in 1970 by the renowned artist, Erik Laubscher and is committed to an enriching open tuition and policy of non-discrimination on the grounds of race, colour, gender or religion that has been in place since the inception of the school. The staff are united in the goal of developing visual literacy, exceptional practical portfolios and research skills. The full potential of each student is developed and practical skills in conjunction with theory are nurtured in a creative environment. Classes are kept small for individualised attention by a team of lecturers who are all still practicing artists in their respective fields.
