EDUCATION & YOUTH ARTS
Get messy, get creative, get skilled. We are very proud to be providing what seems to be the only Art GCSE option for Home Educators in the South of England. We also run mural projects, outreach workshops,
youth art workshops & parties . Our ethos is 'to build confidence through embracing risks and making mistakes creatively & letting go of the need to be perfect.' We encourage problem solving & an open attitude to learning.
We aim to make all of our workshops and classes as accessible as possible. Do check the details of all of our workshops – many of them are open to artists aged 12 and above.
Art GCSE & portfolio class
For ages 12-16 years.
Fridays, term times. 11 am – 3.30pm.
£35 per session. Plus £35 for materials per term.
For Home Educated or flexi-schooled students who want to really let loose their creativity and either build a portfolio or / and do the GCSE in Art with OCR. We have teamed up with Faregos Exam Centre to ensure that students can access the qualification. Last year we had 3 students who passed their GCSE Art with us, this year we have 11 students taking their exam with us in April.
These classes are informal, friendly and encouraging; its important that parents and students take the initiative to choose their own topics of study and develop their own research skills. Developing critical thinking is an essential part of being an artist - which is why we do not dictate a lesson plan each session but instead encourage each student to explore their own agendas. Some classes will be group focused with a portrait model, still life or new techniques, but frequently the sessions are a hive of various activities as students build their own portfolios.

Outreach & pupil referral units
A bulk of our work is in schools, pupil referral units, SEN schools, Naomi House Hospice and with various organisations such as SPUD youth, Hampshire Culture Trust and CAMHS offering freelance bespoke art projects that are engaging & dynamic. We offer workshops in: set design, spray can mural & stencil art, lantern sculpture with wire or willow, portrait heads, abstract block heads, Junk sculpture in plastic or metal, mask making, T-shirt design and fine art.
Our T-shirt design package is particularly popular as they all get to take at least one T-shirt home with them that they have stencilled, plus they get a chance to work on a group piece on a large board.
Contact us to discuss your needs and make a booking.
