Young Artists

We offer Easter and summer holiday courses with a high level of tuition, from drawing, contemporary painting, specialist sculpture, and experimental media classes. Our Young Artist courses include bumper programmes such as graphic novel, manga and animation classes.

Scholarship places

For both Easter and Summer school we reserve a limited number of spaces on each course for scholarship students. We are committed to making our courses affordable and available regardless of background or circumstances.

Scholarship Criteria

We offer a number of 50% and 100% means-tested scholarships for each course. If you would like to apply for a scholarship on behalf of your child, please complete the application form. Once received, your application will be assessed and if successful you will be contacted to discuss which course your child will join.

  • To apply for the 100% scholarship, your child must be a recipient of Free School Meals. You must provide evidence of this by uploading a scan or photograph to your application form in the box provided. Pupils from comprehensive schools will be prioritised.

The supporting documents must include the full name and date of birth of the student attending the course and they need to be valid for the period when the course is running.
