Aimed at ages 13+, Youth Art Workshops give young people the opportunity to produce powerful and expressive art.
Art at the Heart CIC is led by qualified art and design lecturers with 25+ years of experience working with youth groups in award winning art departments teaching a broad range of arts qualifications. If you’re studying art, the workshops can support GCSE/A-Level arts subjects and portfolio and interview preparation. Alternatively, you can work towards Arts Awards at Explore, Bronze, Silver and (soon Gold) levels. Gold Arts Award carries 16 UCAS tariff points.

- explore subjects that matter to/are relevant to you
- help design and shape the identity and direction of Youth Arts
- develop leadership and communication skills
