Whether you're preparing coursework for your A-levels or university portfolio, or are a young person aged 15-21 willing to engage with the National Gallery Collection in a creative way, this course is for you!
All skills levels are welcome and you can take part with materials you can easily find at home (see 'Recommended materials' below).
Each week, you will discover creative techniques to explore your immediate surroundings with a fresh outlook. Our Gallery Educators will offer discussions, insights, and practical prompts to guide you in looking at your environment – whether it be your neighbourhood, your house, or your social bubble – as a source for artistic exploration and inspiration.
Looking at National Gallery paintings, we will discuss ways of connecting with nature and finding beauty in the everyday, which can help promote wellbeing, as well as inspire artistic creation.
You will also have the opportunity to get professional feedback on your work from a University of the Arts educator in the last session on 11 May (limited to 30 young people).
The content is safe for younger siblings who might be taking part or listening in.
All sessions will be close-captioned.
