  • The group helps young people to develop their identity as artists.
  • Young people work alongside an experienced artist facilitator and have the opportunity to try a range of different art forms including ceramics, illustration, digital and textiles. 
  • We go on regular visits to exhibitions, artist studios and other cultural places and spaces (Venture Arts covers the cost of these trips).
  • We support our young artists to set personal development goals and to access opportunities like commissions, artist residencies and placements with other cultural organisations.
