ECA's School of Art incorporates the histories and perspectives of Edinburgh College of Art’s original Schools of Drawing & Painting and of Sculpture, along with the Photography department and the Centre for Visual & Cultural Studies.
The majority of the teaching and learning at undergraduate level is through experiential projects of differing timeframes and complexity, situated in a studio environment.
Conceptual, material and technic al issues are explored through seminars, workshops, lectures, tutorials and critiques.
The study of Professional Practice and Visual Culture is embedded in all the programmes.
Each year there are opportunities for a number of students to take up exchanges in Europe, Scandinavia, South Africa and North America.
In recent years, arrangements have been formalised with art colleges and universities in Australia, USA, Canada, Switzerland, Poland and Germany.
