Young Associates: Explore East

A new opportunity for Young Associates to discover the creative environment of Shoreditch and nearby East London.  Each week the group will meet at our Shoreditch studios before making a short journey on foot to a nearby location to draw.  The schedule will select according to exhibitions from the Barbican Centre, Flowers East, the Hales Gallery and the Whitechapel Gallery as well as our own gallery in Shoreditch. In addition, exciting out of house locations such as Brick Lane, Spitalfields Market, Old Truman Brewery and Liverpool Street station will provide challenging drawing opportunities.

All locations will be within walking distance from our Shoreditch studios and a full schedule will be issued in advance.  Students will be able to enjoy the buzz of this creative quarter and draw as a small group in these interesting locations.  


The school is committed to making all courses offered affordable and available to those who have a passion and aptitude for drawing. Therefore we offer a number of 50% and 100% means-tested scholarships for each course. We welcome applications to the Young Associates from all young people with a talent and passion for drawing who are able to commit to regular attendance.
