Young Artist Collective & ECHO Artists

Young Artist Collective

The Young Artist Collective (YAC) is a diverse group of young people who work in and beyond the studio to create an individual and collaborative arts practice. Members explore different art forms and develop arts leadership skills with others.

Join our Young Artist Collective

Our weekly Young Artist Collective sessions provide the perfect opportunity for anyone 16 to 24 years of age with an interest in music, sound and other art forms to create work with a diverse group of people in a supportive, nurturing environment. Tuition is available in singing, keyboard, drums, guitar and bass.

 

Sessions take place on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday's, require no previous experience and are free to attend.

If you would like to find out more about our Young Artist Collective then please contact Peter, our Lead Musician, via email at peter@skimstone.org.uk or on 07855674012.

Echo Artists

Echo Artists is a dynamic group of artists that have developed and established their practice in music, performance and visual arts. Many members have progressed from our Young Artist Collective and have the opportunity to work towards their Silver or Gold Arts Award.

ECHO Artists mentor and support our Young Artist Collective and are members of the Leadership Team who plan and organise Skimstone Arts' sessions and projects. They also collaborate independently to create their own music and art-based work.
