Arts Organisation

TOMA is a 21st century art education programme. TOMA is currently the only postgraduate level art programme in Essex after all others were stopped by their host Universities. Set up to offer responsive, affordable, accessible art education to artists. TOMA is unaccredited in the traditional sense, but provides a programme of learning that will benefit artists in the same way.

Founded in 2016 by Emma Edmondson TOMA was set up in partnership with Metal in Southend, working with them for an incubation period before becoming an independent not for profit. We believe in life long learning + aim to make the possibility of postgraduate style art education accessible to all. We are artist-run + based in Southend-on-Sea.
