Looking for a bit of artistic, creative fun for your school holidays? Then our Art School may be just the thing for you!

Over the course of 4 days (Monday-Thursday) young people will work with a professional arts educator to experiment with a variety of materials to explore and create artwork. Be inspired by the Laing's broad collection and explore and develop your artistic skills and techniques, and develop a portfolio of work.

*There is also the opportunity for participants to achieve the nationally accredited Arts Award (Explore level), at an additional cost. More information about the Arts Award can be found on their website.

Please note: Completed Arts Award portfolios have to moderated by Trinity College London which can take some time. Therefore young people will not receive their certificates immediately after the Art School. 

Please bring a packed lunch. 

We aim to be fully inclusive and children and visitors with additional needs are welcome. If you'd like to have an informal conversation with a tutor or member of the team before booking please email learning@laingartgallery.org.uk.
