Glasgow is Britain's second city for art, and the Glasgow School of Art's world-famous art nouveau building, designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh, stands as a beacon of excellence and innovation in all areas of artistic endeavor. The School boasts numerous prize winners and famous practicing artists among its alumni. Arcadia Abroad students enjoy full integration and personal studio space as part of the School's independent and creativity-based approach.
