A paid opportunity for postgraduate students to facilitate their own workshops for families (alongside the universities Outreach Team)
What sort of activities are you looking to include in the workshops?
Activities that are suitable for all age ranges and abilities are really welcome and can be inspired by your own practice/processes. Examples of workshops that work well for families include: large scale drawing, weaving, printing and printmaking, designing and building on a small scale (e.g. designing your own mini building/interior space on a small scale).
Basically anything that is safe for people of all ages to experiment with, gives people a flavour of Chelsea/art school and inspires them. We would like to keep the brief as open as possible.
Using materials such as:
Plaster of Paris
Alginate (slow set, packs of 550g)
Superfine Casting Plaster
Brown casting bandage (wide-holed)
Mod Roc mandages
to create a series of interesting sculptural objects

All our projects start with a creative brief and access to subject area experts- UAL tutors and students (Outreach Ambassadors). They provide a space to experiment with different disciplines, techniques and processes. This enables students to discover what kind of art or design practice could suit their creative abilities and interests.
Our core ‘post-16’ programme runs across students’ 1st and 2nd year of Level 3 or A/AS Level study. Spring Schools encourage students to explore a range of disciplines before specialising in a particular subject area in our Summer Schools. During our Autumn/Winter Schools activities switch to developing portfolios and preparing for interviews in order to support students' progression to university courses.
