For West Hampshire Young Artists (WHYA), we offer fun yet educational classes, based around classical, foundation drawing and painting skills in small groups of 4-10 children. WHYA workshops are about freeing their creativity, boosting well-being & confidence whilst teaching them new techniques and improving existing ones, in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. The perfect environment for your budding artist! We run a variety of WHYA children’s workshops: from holiday & half-term to after-school & Saturdays; from home education classes to private tuition.

WHYA Scholars Summer School Do you have a West Hampshire Young Artist (rising Year 8) looking to apply for an art scholarship at 13+? In advance of the Summer School, we will meet with you and your child to look at the school(s) in question and their criteria, go through your scholar-to-be’s portfolio and get a feel for their needs and interests. Then, over a 4 day Summer School in a small group of 4-6 students, we will revise and refine key techniques, art history and critical thinking, practise discussing our work and articulating confidently our artistic endeavours, as well as dedicating time to specific portfolio development for each student.
