YOUNG ARTISTS CLASSES
Calling all young artists - either studying Art for GCSE or who just love the subject and would like to take their practice a little more seriously but in a fun and exploratory way. If you have an aspiring creative who isn't getting the input they need to grow - send them our way and we'll provide bespoke support that complements the curriculum in school but also enable greater creative freedom and initiative!
YOUNG ARTIST / GCSE BOOSTER CLASS
Age Range : 12-16’s
Thursdays : 4:45 to 6:00 pm
Tutor: Ellie Green
SAS founder and dedicated Artist teacher Ellie Green has been working with young artists for over a decade both in schools and gallery settings with a success rate of 100% A*-C. She not only understands the challenges of undertaking a creative qualifications but also understands the limitations of some school settings. Working with young artists has long been her passion and her regular booster classes inject fun, creativity and experimentation into our young artists practice - they get results too!
Following a monthly cycle students will engage in tasks to boost critical thinking and understanding of artists, engage in practical workshops linked to artists and explore approaches to linking their work to others but with original ideas and thinking. This process will prepare students with the basic skills to tackle any topic they might encounter through their coursework or exam projects.
One to one tutorials also take place once a cycle where students can bring along their current work or topic and get detailed feedback from an experienced tutor.
Ellie will provide bespoke support that complements the curriculum in school but also allow for greater creative freedom and initiative as to how students approach a topic!
Spaces available for any young artist wanting to broaden their skills starting: Thursday 2nd May 2019
How to book: Book online for a half term (5 sessions ) or full term (10 sessions). Prior booking essential. Full booking terms and conditions are here.
YOUNG SKETCHERS CLASS

We have had an incredible amount of enquiries from parents looking for a more focused art class for younger artists and we hear you! Many classes for this age group tend to focus on craft based activities that we feel do not stretch and broaden our young artists skill and confidence enough for our liking.
This is not a craft club, repeat, this ain’t no craft club. Of course the sessions will be fun, inventive and experimental, but we like to take our young artists seriously and are excited help them build a portfolio they can be proud of (and that would certainly help with scholarship applications) whilst introducing them to both materials and techniques that might be deemed too ‘grown up’ for them in a traditional setting.
So if you have the next Warhol in your misdt - a free thinker, a dreamer or someone who just loves to get stuck in to creative making - then send them our way. We are now taking sign ups for September 2019 for this exciting new class. We only have space for 8 students tops at the moment - but are also considering a monthly Sunday drop in to accompany these sessions, so watch this space.
