Young Creatives

Creatives aged 12 to 25 take over the studio every Saturday afternoon to develop skills in anime drawing and cross-platform artmaking, including working with textiles, sketching, collage and sculpture.

Every Saturday, join in alternating sessions with artists Pinky – who’ll teach you anime and manga drawing – and Annie Shin, who’ll walk you through the practices of drawing, sculpting and painting.

Bring along your artworks in progress, your inspirational materials or mood boards, or start on something completely fresh, as you get to meet, learn from and collaborate with other young artists. The full schedule is available on the booking page linked below.
