What We Do

The Young Art Studio class explores a different theme and utilises differing materials from term to term with a focus on developing the drawing skills of students. Throughout the term we encourage utilisation of an abstract artistic process including research, experimentation, skill development and ideation in order to provide students with core drawing skills which we believe are hugely important in the development of their visual language. The Young Art Studio class employs a high tutor to student ratio to ensure that each student and their specific needs are catered for. In addition, students are exposed to and able to use our pottery facilities, including a kiln, as well as exploring printmaking and our very own etching machine as a means of exposing them to as much of the creative process as possible. At the end of each term, students will go home with a workbook documenting the research that they have done, their experimentation, the skills they’ve developed and ideas they’ve conceptualised as well as a final project consisting of a large-scale print or sculpture.
