Future Creatives

Customised art classes for schools

UAL Future Creatives can provide customised Art and Design courses for schools, community organisations and charities.

High-quality creative education is an incredibly important part of a young learner’s development and well-being. It stimulates curiosity, creativity, and imagination as well as developing communication skills. The creative industries are the fastest-growing part of the UK economy, contributing over £100 billion every year. This is greater than the automotive, aerospace, life sciences and the oil and gas sectors combined!

However, Creative education often takes a back seat in the curriculum to core subjects and is under-resourced. We understand the pressures your organisation is under and that’s where UAL can help. Why not work with us to enhance and improve your current offer?

Whether you are a school (primary or secondary), education provider, community organisation or charity, our exciting and engaging courses can be designed and delivered for learners aged 7 years old and up. From sustainable fashion to graphic design to cartooning and sculpture to portfolio or exam advice, we can expertly deliver them all.

All our teachers and practitioners are DBS checked, have been through safeguarding training and are experts at delivering to school-age learners (both primary and secondary age).

Courses can be:

  • Delivered online, on site (ours or yours) or blended delivery
  • A tailored version of an existing course
  • A course designed to suit specific needs and learning outcomes
  • GCSE, A level, BTEC, UALAB, Art and Design portfolio workshops

Future Creatives Stories

  • It's never too early to start: art classes for kids and teenagers

    Are you a young creative looking for art classes? At Future Creatives we believe it's never too early to start. Our main agenda is supporting the next generation of creative kids and teenagers in exploring their creativity outside of the classroom and helping teenagers develop their skills for GCSEs, A-levels and beyond.

  • Ari's work.

    The importance of art and creativity in a child’s development

    Over the last few months our Future Creatives community has grown so much, and we’ve been excited to see students joining our online workshops from all around the world. Siblings Aris and Danae are based in Athens, Greece and have frequently joined our online classes, tuning into our courses on how to make self-portraits in the style of Aurélia Durand, learning colour theory plus many more!

  • studio experiments (from the video)- fabric dye and salt on paper, air dry clay, aluminium
