Try one class
A trial class is an opportunity to attend one class in the course to help the learner decide if he or she would like to join us for the rest of the term. This trial class can be seen as an introduction to the activities that will be covered in the course. You are welcome to book a trial class for any point in the term, except at the final class, when we have our show and share event. Only one trial class per course is allocated for each learner. 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.
Who teaches the course
The course is taught by Naila Zulfugarova and Natalie Joseph.
