During our Summer Schools you'll spend time working in subject-based studios alongside tutors and Outreach Ambassadors who are experts in their field. 

Develop a fresh body of work for your portfolio 

By the end of the week you'll have a range of work that represents you as a young creative and you'll take away tips on how to fuel your own self-directed projects. Find out what it takes to develop work for applying 
to university courses at foundation diploma or undergraduate degree level. 

Celebrate the work you create 

On the last day of the Summer Schools each College will host a group celebration to showcase the work you've produced. Invite friends and family to share this experience with you .
