What can I expect

The Youth-teenage after school art class is designed to support student’s school-based learning and prepare them for ever greater success as they journey towards their GCSE art exam, and later their A-levels.  The class will offer students opportunities to develop greater technical and creative skills while developing a personal approach to projects.

Structured learning
Each session has been carefully planned to take you step by step towards building your knowledge and skills in Fine Art drawing and painting.

Individual attention
Loads of individual 1:1 tuition, and teaching by demonstration and examples.

Personal artistic development
This course has a strong focus in showing students how to improve and develop their existing skills and creativity, building on what students have been taught at school.  Your new knowledge will become a key ingredient to encourage your independence, self-confidence, creativity and contribute towards improved grades at school.

Shared learning
There will be plenty of opportunities to receive lots of positive feedback, share ideas and learn from each other in a supportive group environment.

Choose this course if you want to learn more about drawing and painting and improve your Art + Design, Fine Art or General Art grades at school


This is a new course so no testimonial just yet, although I’m positive they’ll be as good as other courses.

Course structure

Teaching is fully differentiated and suitable for different ages with different project outcomes and expectations for each year group.  This means everyone can work together benefiting and learning from each other’s strengths but still be stretched and challenged to reach their individual potential.

Students will work on creative projects giving them insights into the history of art and important modern and contemporary artists that will give context to the work they create.

Drawing  and observation
Drawing skills are fundamental to developing artistically and all projects will give our young artists the chance to develop their observational and drawing skills.  

Art materials
Students will learn a wide range of art techniques and use a wide range of materials with lots of demonstrations and 1:1 tuition to ensure they learn how to develop their techniques correctly.

Developing a sketchbook alongside final art works is important and students will be encouraged to undertake research and develop creative ideas using individual initiative to showcase their creative ideas – sketchbook techniques will be taught teaching them how sketchbooks are the creative engine that drive artistic ideas forward.
