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.
