textile class with tutor

Our Young Artists course has been specifically designed to help 15-17 year olds boost their GCSE and A-Level portfolios with new media. Over the course of the four day programme, running during half term (18th-22nd February 2020), students will learn the various techniques of embroidery, appliqué, cross stitch and latex.

“The Art Academy is all about the people, not just the tutors, technicians and office staff (who are all practising artists) but all of the fellow students who, no matter their age or nationality, bond together to create a familial atmosphere, which I think is unique in such a competitive industry.”

We have spaces available to book on weekend, evening and short courses this Spring. They offer in-depth skills training across painting, drawing, printmaking, photography & video and sculpture, under the expert guidance of esteemed practising artists.

We have spaces available to book on part-time courses starting next term. These courses take place one day a week (10am – 5pm) for ten weeks at our Mermaid Court site, near London Bridge. They offer in-depth skills training across painting, drawing, printmaking, photography & video and sculpture, under the expert guidance of eminent practising artists. And you’ll learn in small groups of no more than 15 students, giving you a hands-on, tailored experience.
