Raising the Bar

Raising the Bar 2017

Summer 2017

Ruthin Craft Centre is pleased to announce that our Raising the Bar programme is back for 2017.

What is Raising the Bar? The Raising the Bar programme is devised for more able and talented AS/A level pupils studying art & design and / or design & technology in Denbighshire.

The programme offers additional opportunities for those showing artistic merit to enable access to high level artistic practice, promoting engagement with contemporary practitioners and access to specialist techniques in applied art and design – additional to those available in schools.

The programme also offers support for young people in developing their understanding of the vast range of artistic careers and further education opportunities through our ‘Careers Study Day’ and ‘Work Experience’ placements. The programme concludes with a celebratory exhibition at Ruthin Craft Centre of the work produced by the young people during the year.

This project has been made possible by the Arts Council of Wales.
