Every young person deserves an equal opportunity to grow intellectually and creatively, without placing pressure on their parents or guardians.
That’s why our art school exists – to grow vital access to sidelined art education in the local community and it is free for those students who come from financially disadvantaged backgrounds.

Students will be guided on how to create a beautiful landscape, considering its depth, contrast, and perspective. Program will cover most of the landscape foundations:
Colour theory. How to create harmonious colour contrast.
Perspective and light. How to create realistic perspective and illumination.
Value. How to achieve the value by applying a contrast between light and dark.
Composition. How to put together a piece so it's pleasing to the eye.
Texture. How to create different types of texture via using different mediums and techniques.
Opacity. How to create opacity through an application of contrast between translucent paint and more pigmented paint (use of watercolours).
Each session will be focussed on one or several aspects of the landscape and students will create several studies throughout the course, which will greatly contribute towards any art portfolio should young artist decides to apply for a bursary or take Art &Design for GCSE.
£110 (free for students from financially disadvantaged backgrounds)
