Inspired by the exhibition, Young Gainsborough: Rediscovered Landscape Drawings- in collaboration with the Royal collection Trust, National Gallery of Ireland, Dublin and Nottingham Castle- this year’s Teenage Art School (TAS) explores how artists respond to place, combining AI, text and image to produce statements about our lived environments.

We are excited to be working with varied practitioners over 5 days in August, with a dedicated workshop day led by Jade Montserrat, who will be exhibiting work alongside TAS. Jade is a research-led artist and writer based in Scarborough. She makes visual and live artworks that explore place, the vulnerabilities of bodies and the tactile and sensory qualities of language.

As Practically Creative, artist and engineer duo, Laura Robertson and Jared Holden blend their combined knowledge of Art and engineering to produce installations with an AI twist. Be guided by these artists and artist-producer Sas Yates to work creatively with collage, photography, drawing and AI, developing contemporary work for an exhibition at York Art Gallery from 1st October.

There is also the potential to gain Bronze Arts Award. This is a five day course for 11 to 17 year olds. Whether art is just a hobby or something you are studying (or planning to study) at GCSE or A level, Teenage Art School will help you develop your skills as an artist.
