Based in the informal atmosphere of the Fitzwilliam’s studio, the Museum’s Education team and freelance artists offer one-to-one advice to students. We can help students to research their exam theme by giving access to the wealth of ideas and inspiration in the work of other artists. To do this we offer starting points, gallery tours and advice on how to make the most of our on-line resources.

In addition, the artists and art materials in the studio are available, and not least the space - both mental and physical - to work which is not always so easy to find at home. Artistic support will be available in the media of drawing, painting and printmaking each day, and also encouragement to draw from observation in the galleries.

Focus Saturdays
