Our course is aimed at young artists who enjoy drawing from life, have the ability to concentrate and have a real thirst for art.
During this course we explore drawing, painting and sculpture.

9 - 12yrs - Focus on the theatre design in 3D. We will look at the Victorian theatre, creating our own little theatres complete with set designs for Swan Lake.
