Young Associates: Oxford Aged 15 - 18

Our Autumn Term is already in progress. Details regarding our Spring 2023 Term will be released in due course.

Young Associates are open to young people aged 15 - 18 who have a passion for drawing and a desire to improve their skills. Taught by professional practicing artists, the weekly class will lead students through a range of observational drawing exercises to create a portfolio of high-quality work.  

At the Ashmolean Museum students have access to the museum’s diverse collection of art and archaeology.

During the course of the term students will draw from the museum collection as well as from clothed models, still life set-ups and on occasion work outside.  All materials for classes are supplied.

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.

If you would like to apply for a scholarship place please complete the application form. You do not need to book separately through the website and we will contact you if we need any further information.
