Portfolio Preparation Courses

Portfolio Preparation Courses for students applying for direct entry to art college are held regularly in the Gallery. The main focus is on developing participants' observational drawing skills, but students will also learn about portfolio requirements for different colleges and are helped to plan work schedules for completing portfolios while still in school. 

Please note: Portfolio Preparation Classes will not be taking place until further notice


Youth Forum

Our Youth Forum is made up of current and past work experience students who give us feedback and suggestions for our programmes. Members also take part in special events and help organise activities for young people.

Please note: The Youth Forum is not currently operating.
