Since 2011, BONAS MACFARLANE ARTS has established itself as a unique, highly specialized and successful department within Bonas Macfarlane, one of the UK's most respected providers of private tuition & educational advice.

With our guidance and support, students have regularly achieved art scholarships at 11+ and 13+, A* grades at GCSE and A-Level, top scores for IB, and places on first choice Foundation or Degree courses in the UK, Europe and the US.

Our programme covers:

  • a broad range of specialist art and design skills
  • portfolio assessment and development
  • mock interviews
  • exam preparation
  • application form submission
  • personal statement development
  • gallery visits, revision and research supervision

We aim to enable a student to fully realize their creative and artistic potential, and to understand what the subject can give to them in the short and long term. Rather than being solely focused on their art projects, our unique approach to working with our clients includes a schedule of open days, degree shows and gallery visits, work experience, and a continuous dialogue parallel to the student’s studies aimed at exploring their relationship to art and their future educational options. The process is often revelatory, shining a light into hitherto unknown areas of art and design and leading to students making applications to courses and institutions they would previously never have considered.

We are experienced at working with students at all stages of their development, and supporting them in discovering the direction of their artistic journey, find their voice, and achieving their ambitions.
