Love art? Then explore new techniques and a variety of processes within 6 artforms on our Mini-Foundation. Engage with ideas, techniques and materials that are often not accessible at school or college. 

Designed to help you find out what makes you tick as a young artist; St Ives School of Painting’s Mini-Foundation is a series of artist led workshops for 13-18s.

There are six sessions in each term and you can book each one individually but if you book all six the final one is free of charge.

22nd March – Printmaking – explore the fundamentals of printmaking with professional print-maker Rachael Kantaris, and come away with stunning prints of your own design.

Each term has similar themes but the content of the workshops will be different and terms are designed to follow on from one another. 

So if you have completed one term you wont be bored joining us for the next.
