Central Saint Martins (CSM) has developed the School at Home for 13 to 16 Year Olds Online Short Courses to meet the demands of our younger international students and the current world restrictions. These courses are based on our popular residential summer schools that we have been running since 2009. You can expect all the intensity of a 2-week programme, led by CSM tutors, with the added flexibility that will allow you to join the community at CSM from wherever you are in the world.

All courses include a full day of activities including:

  • Live tutor engagement
  • Set lessons and assignments each day
  • Tutor feedback on your work
  • Live crit sessions
  • Daily - fact sheets for all demos
  • An end of the course catalogue featuring your work
  • CSM online gallery/exhibition
  • A certificate of attendance

To take part in an online short course all you need is:

  • A Google Chrome web browser - the most up to date version
  • A microphone and headphones so you can talk/hear your tutor - a headset with a built-in microphone is recommended
  • A webcam - so your tutor is able to see you
  • A strong internet connection via ethernet or WiFi - 2G, 3G or 4G will not be strong enough and we wouldn’t want you to lose connection during a class

All sessions are recorded and available to you as an archive for up to 3 months after the course has been completed, so you can go back and watch the tutor’s lessons as many times as you like during that time.
