Criw Celf Secondary for Swansea, Neath & Port Talbot

Criw Celf Secondary is an Arts Council of Wales funded project for children who have shown a talent or special interest in Art. Young people from schools in Swansea and Neath Port Talbot, in Years 7 & 8, are able to apply and become part of a fun, exciting and encouraging creative project at Mission Gallery.

Over several weeks, taking place on Saturdays, participants will have the opportunity to enjoy five master classes led by professional artists and designers, exploring a range of art techniques and skills. This is an amazing opportunity for interested young people. It is a chance to be part of a regular art club, make new friends with similar interests and learn new skills.

We are looking for young people in Years 7 and 8 (aged 12 to 14) at Secondary education, who are ‘More Able and Talented’ in Art – those who show talent, are imaginative and creative. They may love drawing, painting, making or building; they may spend their time inventing characters, making animations, making their own jewellery or building and constructing imaginative sculptures. We really want these curious creative youngsters to come along and take part in our Criw Celf Secondary programme.
