Children and young People

The Rosetta School of Art for Children started in 2010 and after its great success, it is continuing from September 2015.

This course will challenge your child’s creative thinking, refine their painting and drawing skills and improve focus, concentration and self confidence. On completion of term one your child will achieve an Arts Award Discover Certificate and by term tow your child will progress to the Arts Award Explore, equivalent to entry level one.

The next program will run for two terms from 19th September 2015 through to 9th April 2016.

Enrolment into the Rosetta School of Art for Children is subject to an application process, please attend on 12th September at 11am with some examples of your child’s work.

Rosetta Art Centre has delivered a number of projects specifically with young people, including the Young Newham Artists project, the Young Creative Enterprise Programme, the Imagining Identity project, and our work with the Coborn Centre for Adolescent Mental Health and the Youth Offending Team.

Newham has one of the highest proportions of young people in the country and we aim to nurture the energy and creativity of local young people to allow them to be expressive and explore their emerging identity, as well as develop new and existing skills for their future.

Take a look at these short films made by some of the previous participants of the Young Newham Artists project:
