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 Bronze or Silver Arts Award. Additional practical sessions will be available subject to easing of covid-19 lockdown restrictions
