The Ruskin School of Drawing and Fine Art - Ruskin


The School can trace its origins to 1871 when John Ruskin founded a drawing school in the University Galleries (subsequently the Ashmolean Museum of Art and Archaeology) to encourage artisanship and technical skills. The Ruskin remained at the Ashmolean until 1975 when it moved to 74 High Street. It also occupies a further building at 128 Bullingdon Road.

The School was originally called the Ruskin School of Drawing. Fine Art was added as a discrete focus in 1945.

The Slade School of Fine Art relocated to the Ruskin for the duration of the Second World War.
