Every term at Young at Art we teach our students tried and tested skilled techniques in drawing painting, printing, sculpture and always encourage our students to explore their creativity.
Our students constantly learn all about
• Colour theory
• Composition
• Tone
• Perspective
• Depth
• Learn to SEE as an artist

Our term time classes and holiday workshops are age appropriate; some creative, some explorative and some technique based and all of the above. We have an amazing team of talented artists to share their bounds of knowledge throughout the year.

After school – Saturdays – Holidays

Students are taught methodically through step by step instructions and follow the tutor’s lead when learning technical skills for projects.
At the start of each project we all come together to brain storm and share our ideas to grow our ideas.
Each term we cover a different variety of projects as our students roll forward to the next term. We always cover drawing, painting and a famous artist study.

“Drawing is the foundation for most forms of art and we frequently return to this area to constantly develop a student’s skill so they can learn to ‘see’ as an artist”.

Our philosophy
