Summer's coming and we've taken an in-depth look at our very popular residential summer school for teenagers’ course, Art and Design Residential Summer School for 13 to 16 Year Olds, taught by Rochelle Fry. This year will be our second year at LVS Ascot, which is only 1 hour outside of London, at the Licensed Victuallers’ School.

So who should take Art and Design Residential Summer School for 13 to 16 Year Olds?

If you are interested – passionate or just curious – about art and design, this 2-week intensive residential course is perfect for you!

What can students expect to do on this course?

Every day is different, covering a new material, discipline or way of approaching work. While on the course you will be encouraged to build skills – drawing, painting and sculpting, and also develop an understanding of a more experimental process and why that is so important for art and design education.

You will also meet international students; the course attracts people from all over world, so you can start to build a network of like-minded creative people!

What will students finish the course with?

An understanding of the creative process and what is expected of you, in terms of a portfolio, so that you can start your studies in art and design, in the UK. You will leave with lots of new work, in many different materials, and documentation of the pieces that you cannot take with you. Everything that is taught can be re-worked, and the exercises can be repeated at home, which will continue to form the basis of building your portfolio for further studies even after the course has been completed.

What is the course structure like?

Art and Design Residential Summer School for 13 to 16 Year Olds is a practical studio course – you will be working with your hands, eyes and minds, and learning about different ways to use materials. Most of the course is comprised of individual work, but there are a couple of times where you will work together in collaboration with others on projects.

Throughout the course, the tutor will show images and talk to you about art and design, and encourage you to engage in discussion about the topics you will encounter. We will also engage in critical thinking, communication and learning how to assess and comment on fellow students’ work in group critiques. After a few times this will become easy ... honestly.

There are also two visits to London museums and galleries, which will form the basis for visual research, developing your sketchbook and continued creative process.
