Studio 8 School of Art and Design


Studio 8 School of Art and Design originated from the artistic workshop “MAVROGENIS”, directed by the late Costas Mavrogenis and George Mavrogenis, which have been artistically contributing to the community for more than a century. Their genuine and noteworthy artistic work was reflected in a number of pioneering creations and innovative ideas including the Limassol Carnival and the Limassol Wine Festival, as well as on stage designs for various theatre plays and shows.

Mavrogenis’ family tradition to the cultural life of Limassol continues to evolve through Andreas Mavrogenis,a graduate of the Academy of Fine Arts in Florence.

Studio 8 School of Art & Design was established by the scenographer Andreas Mavrogenis in 2008 and it is an approved center by Pearson-Edexcel and BTEC offering a variety of art related programs such as Higher National Diploma, BTEC Diploma, Foundation Courses, IGCSE and A-level examinations as well as art classes for all ages and levels.

We believe in the power of a students’ creativity and our aim is to provide them with opportunities to develop their artistic skills and foster them as independent learners. Known for our passion and love for art and design, these creative workshops are an essential part of what art is about and influence students in their everyday life. By sharing this diversity and knowledge of expertise with our students, we provide a unique learning environment for our creative learners and artists of tomorrow.
