Art and Design Summer School for 13 to 16 Year Olds Short Course

Course description

This art and design workshop course has been created with teenagers that are looking to get the full experience of art school in mind. Whether you consider yourself a complete beginner or if you are already studying art and design at school, this course will give you the experience of learning at Central Saint Martins. You will learn new skills while developing your confidence through experimentation, idea generation and creativity enhancing activities whilst on this residential course. There is also a focus on building upon your technical skills through practical assignments that include making and designing.

Towards the end of the course you will take these techniques and apply them to a personal project of your choosing with guidance from your tutor. All students will complete the course with sketchbooks full of ideas, along with a number of finished works and new technical abilities, all of which will help inspire your art and design practice in the future
