Future Creatives

Being our most popular age group for over eleven years we have developed a brand of visual arts teaching which keeps young teen’s energetically engaged through practice and communication. We find this age group enjoys the many art-ed experiences we present as an offset to an otherwise strong national STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) curriculum. Through a self-expression and creative practice driven syllabus your teen will improve observation skills, self-confidence and focus. Whether you are a homeschooling parent looking for adding variety to your child’s lesson plans or looking for alternatives to traditional learning structures which challenge attention span, we are here to help. We are DBS certified, members of the International Visual Literacy Association, and have years of practical knowledge in the visual arts and teaching. Our non-discriminatory teaching methods are completely focused on the individual’s learning path. Our Parent and Student Feedback page is testament to the commitment we make to your child learning and growing.

PHOTOGRAPHY + CAMERA BASICS (beginners)


The fun begins at learning how to make images. Automation in mobile phones makes everyone a budding photographer – that’s the elephant in the room. Our students want more than a point and shoot experience and we deliver that. How do I photograph my dog in the dark? Why are my pictures not sharp? Do you think this is a good picture? In the Photography + Camera Skills courses we move away from automation and into thinking individually about making a photograph. Your child discovers the science behind the camera and light in a series of experiments through which the fundamentals of photography are revealed. And the fun begins!

VISUAL LITERACY FOR FUTURE CREATIVES (Intermediate-Advanced)


From fake news to infographics, staged Instagram selfies to viral images of lawyers with cat avatars our children are growing up in an environment where the image continues to creep into our information forming networks. Understanding how reading images can affect how we feel or interpret society around us is a necessary part of our information gathering process. Moving from a text literate to a visual literate society is the next iteration in expanding our growth as communicators. Our brand of visual literacy courses for future creatives explores the act of seeing. Unlike the photography courses this is about deep seeing into photographs already made. Through games, puzzles and reading picture practice the course guides 12 – 15 year olds observe, feedback and expand on visuals placed in front of them in order to improve on observational and image reading skills and bring to their attention the influencing factors pictures can make.
