This class is here to motivate, inspire and support older students, including those who are undertaking their GCSE and A-Level studies.




Classes will be run flexibly, with fine art projects running alongside targeted sketchbook support.



Topics are designed to develop and extend drawing and painting skills as well as inspire through exploring new artists and contemporary styles.



Students will have generous work spaces complete with table easels, tablets and a wide range of high-quality materials. They’ll particularly love the Sketchbook Wall which is packed full of art goodies, specifically designed to enrich and elevate their sketchbooks.



All support will be provided in line with AQA assessment criteria.
