The Prince's School of Traditional Arts is a school in London which teaches students at the PG level, and short open courses. The school was established in 2005 by the Prince of Wales as part of The Prince's Charities group. The School was originally established as the Visual Islamic and Traditional Arts Programme (VITA) at the Royal College of Art in 1984. It was the brainchild of Dr. Keith Critchlow, the Professor Emeritus at the School, who is also the author of several books on Sacred Geometry. Three postgraduate degrees are offered by the school: a Master of Arts (MA), awarded by the University of Wales, a Master of Philosophy degree (MPhil), also awarded by the University of Wales and a Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.). Research at The Prince's School of Traditional Arts offers the opportunity to look at the traditional arts and the world’s sacred and traditional art forms in relation to the important questions of what art means in the contemporary world and how an artist can work within their community. Researchers at the school pursue compositional and contextual questions arising from historical arts practice; issues pertaining to the relevance and adaptation of the traditional arts to twenty-first century contexts; and questions about the nature and methodology of arts practice as research. The School’s doctoral researchers typically demonstrate their commitment to traditional arts, crafts and design through their own personal and/or professional practice; their ability to reflect on and document their investigation of compositional, contextual and theoretical questions; and their capacity to evidence their research through persuasive, accessible and creative presentations, both written and visual. The School is also interested in furthering traditional arts practice as research in relation to relatively neglected areas such as wellbeing, sacred space and spirituality, and sustainability. Research into topics such as those mentioned above is intended to inspire artists in their creative work, and to contribute to the broad understanding of traditional art and craft practices whilst ensuring their transmission and continuity to future generations.
