Explore art, craft and design at monthly creative workshops for young people as a part of Watts Academy. Work with practising artists and designers to experiment with new techniques, hone your skills and spark your creativity. Every workshop is different and inspired by the Artists' Village.

Try out techniques and tricks of the trade and be inspired by the incredible drawings by G F Watts and Frederic Leighton in the Brothers in Art Exhibition. Draw from a live model and experiment with acrylic paint techniques.
