Parents tell us that attending Young Arts activities increases children's confidence, improves social skills and broadens horizons.For young people who are less engaged, we have been told that attending Young Arts has improved their attendance and engagement.
In 2013, we opened a bursary scheme for Young Arts to help people who would not usually be able to afford to participate in these activities. We are delighted to be able to continue this in 2018-19. For 25 week Saturday Arts Club (9-11 & 11-13yrs) and 10 week Young Creators Art, Design, or Media Clubs (14-16yrs), we offer full and part bursaries to cover course fees. We also offer full bursaries on our Master the Art (14-18yrs) one day sessions for any young person intending to apply for our HE courses the following academic year.
The deadline to apply for a bursary for a January start course is 9 am Thursday 9 January 2019. To find out more about the courses we are running, please visit www.plymouthart.ac.uk/courses/young-arts. We may take further in year applications but it is likely that all available funds will be allocated at this point.The form is submitted online and time stamped, it can be completed by a parent or guardian, or a representative of an organisation on behalf of the child.If you have any questions, do please contact us and we will be happy to help.
