Young Artist Programme

Starting September 2012

17 September - 26 November 2012

Timing: 4pm - 5:30pm

This September, thejamjar launches the Young Artist Programme, a 10 week fine art course for ages 9 - 12 years old.

Having worked within arts education for the past six years through student workshops and exhibitions, thejamjar commits to fostering creative thinking through the Young Artist Programme.

Modeled on providing an understanding of contemporary art practices and concepts, the programme aims to give an insight into the arts scene and how to begin a career as an artist.

A key component of the course is to interact with artists and engage in discussions about contemporary art practices. Students will have the opportunity to witness and work with thejamjar resident artist, and to visit art fairs or gallery exhibitions taking place at the time.

Over the ten week course, students will be given the opportunity to explore and experiment, develop technical skills in two to three mediums, learn how to create processes and recognise best practice. Students will work to build a professional art portfolio and exhibition to be presented at thejamjar.
