What can I expect

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

Value for money
The cost reflects the high quality of the teaching and support offered to students, the care and due diligence taken to ensure students receive the best and most positive experience while with us.

Individual attention
Students will be supported each class by;

  • A highly experienced and qualified tutor: offering loads of individual 1:1 tuition, and teaching by demonstration and examples.
  • Experienced and qualified support staff: offering learning and pastoral support to ensure every child feels safe and secure and able to achieve their potential.

Structured learning
Each class has been carefully planned with a new project for each session to ensure a variety of themes, materials and techniques are explored over a period of time.  This will keep students interested and engaged –  continually learning something new.

Attending these classes regularly will take students step by step towards building their knowledge and skills in Fine Art drawing, painting and mixed media.

Personal artistic development
The classes have 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.  Their new knowledge will become a key ingredient in encouraging their 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.

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.
