Course description

The GSCE and A-Level Portfolio Projects course is designed to complement the national art curriculum and gives students the opportunity to spend a couple of hours in the studio every week with a focus on further developing their drawing skills.

Students thrive in our creatively-inclined environment where we teach them to draw both from observation and from their imaginations. We believe that both drawing from observation and from the imagination are invaluable skills to have when it comes to drawing as it allows the artist to be as diverse and creative as possible.

In addition to developing their drawing and painting abilities, the course allows students to use pottery, textile and printmaking facilities which include access to a kiln, sewing machines, heat press and an etching press. Our GSCE and A-Level Portfolio Projects courses are proven to be a success for the creativity that they encourage with many students going on to gain admission to and graduate with arts degrees in addition to working in creative industries.

Covid safety

We ask everyone to use the hand sanitiser provided at the front door before entering the courtyard. Could all learners please bring their own hand towels and art shirts or aprons. All learners over age 11 are asked to wear face coverings inside, unless they are exempt. If you are dropping off or collecting your child, due to social distancing measures, we ask that you wait in the street outside the studios.

We keep class sizes small to allow for social distancing. We trust that if any learner or anyone in their household is exhibiting symptoms of Covid 19 or has had a positive Covid test, the learner will not be attending. Please contact us if this is the case. It may be possible to re-arrange attendance for another class once the self isolation period is over.
