Description

The Summer Art and Design Academy: Design Futures; is aimed at students who are thinking about studying Visual Arts and Design at GCSE, A Level, FE and HE.

Students will work with tutors, student ambassadors and alumni from Central Saint Martins (CSM) to cover a wide range of art forms and experiment with different techniques and processes.

There will be a focus on confidence building, learning new skills and providing inspiration for independent learning and development, while also working from a brief.

We will also provide information on courses and career pathways to help support young people’s educational journey beyond the course itself. Where possible, students will be taken on research trips and given the opportunity to take part in fun challenges to widen their artistic knowledge and collaborate with other like-minded students.

This course is suitable for students who wish to develop their own project while also embarking on the Silver Arts Award. Additional practical sessions will be available subject to easing of covid-19 lockdown restrictions.
