The Young Artist Summer Experience gives students aged 15-18 a 360-degree, fully immersive experience of working as an artist in London
Over the course of 10 days, students aged 15-18 will have some of the most prestigious experiences of the art industry that one can imagine: going behind the scenes of the Tate Gallery and uncovering the rich history behind some of the worlds most famous artworks, creating a personalised portfolio of work and receiving feedback from top artists, the opportunity to create contemporary sculptures, illustrations, prints and sketchbooks and ending the experience by organising an exhibition in a top London Gallery.
Also available on the Summer Experience is a digital art collaboration with our Video Game Design programme, visits to leading independent galleries in the heart of Mayfair, workshops in VR, performance art and portfolio design and the opportunity to create an stop motion film with award winning animators.
Join us for a life-changing experience that will serve as an outstanding differentiator on your university application form and set you up for a future as a successful art professional.
