Portfolio Club is made for 11-16 year olds who are serious about their art! These are smaller and thus more intense classes which allow for closer guidance. We aim for our participants to going thorough understanding of art techniques and familiarity with materials. Taught with close guidance, through classic and contemporary art making techniques.

We will begin by teaching your child the basics and fundamentals of various techniques as well as provide a brief history of the medium that they are using and then advance to more challenging techniques and methods as they continue to grow. At the end of each term we organise a small exhibition so we can admire all of the work produced together!
Our classes cover but are not limited to: drawing (graphite, pencil, sharpie, water colour pencils, pastels) painting (acrylics, watercolour, ink) printing (relief printing, linocut, mono-printing, screen printing) and mixed media (collage, digital art, projector).

Our sessions run in 4 blocks of 3 classes each term.

We encourage parents to book in a block as that allows for consistent development in technique – but you are welcome to pop in for a single session too. Please note, since it is very important for the participant to attend all sessions in the block to get the most understanding, this means if you miss the deadline for a block booking you will have to wait till the next one.
We aim for our workshops to be as inclusive and affordable as possible, so we are offering a 10% discount if you book at least 2 blocks (that would be 6 classes) and a 20% discount if you book for the whole term (that would be 12 classes).

Our principles are founded on inclusion and diversity so children with SEN and learning difficulties are always welcome.
