Try one class
This is an opportunity for each learner to attend one class in the course, to help decide if he or she would like to join us for the rest of the term. You are welcome to book a trial class at any point in the term (subject to availability), except at the final class, when we have our show and share event. Only one trial class per course is allocated for each young person/ child. It is not possible to attend this course on a drop in basis.
What we do
The Young Art Studio course explores a different theme each term, utilising a wide range of materials. We teach and encourage the development of the artistic process; including research, experimentation, skills and ideation. The central focus is on the core drawing and observational skills of students, which we believe are hugely important to the development of their visual language.
The Young Art Studio course employs a high tutor to student ratio, to ensure that each student and their specific needs are catered for. In addition to drawing, students are exposed to and able to use our pottery facilities, explore printmaking and use the etching machine. The course aims are to expose children and young people to the widest range possible of the materials and equipment available, to facilitate the creative process and fire up their imaginations.
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.
