Vacation Plus Art – London – Ages -14 -17

London is one of the world’s most vibrant and exciting cities and as such, is the perfect place for older teenagers to spend a memorable summer. Our London (Beckenham) Summer Centre enjoys an ideal location, offering the perfect blend of convenience and security. Based in Beckenham, a safe and secure suburb in southeast London, it is still only 20 minutes by train into central London.

In busy periods, facilities in nearby Kentwood College may also be used. It is a 15-minute walk from Kings London.

Students use different media and processes, including drawing, painting and 3D Design to explore their interests. They are encouraged to share cultural perspectives through the creative process. Bookings of 2 weeks or more are encouraged.
