Why you should choose us

AHA creates excellent courses about art, the love of culture and the appreciation of beauty. Mostly these courses are for students but some are for happy parents and their friends.

Students return home confident to speak about art. To learn this must be one of the greatest gifts. For some it might be the beginning of a career in the art world but for everyone, an interest in civilisation adds quality to all walks of life.

At AHA, we believe that the creativity of others is an inspiration for our future. We believe that art studied at first hand is vivid and means something. We also believe that unstuffy tutors and good conversation are the keys to learning. And lastly, we believe that travel makes us greater and that we are guests in another’s country.

So, welcome to our website; we hope you enjoy learning how we make our wonderful courses and why, over 30 years, we and thousands of students have had so much fun.

And remember, if you educate people without art, you get clever philistines.
