Youth Art Workshops will give young people an opportunity to produce powerful and expressive art.
Young people will be encouraged to develop their personal style and confidence using a wide range of media and materials. Subject matter will be developed in collaboration with the young people attending, to allow them to explore youth culture and the things that matter to them.
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.
This is a chance to become part of a pioneering new platform for Youth Arts in Solihull. Help design and shape the identity and direction of this new movement. This is a fabulous opportunity to develop leadership and communication skills and collaborate with others to drive the creation of something original.
Stressed out? – art can be an outlet for stress and support positive mental health.
