Creative Arts Academy

The Earlscliffe Creative Arts Academy is a very happy hive of activity. We cover the a wide range of Creative Arts, such as painting, illustrating, graphic design, textiles, photography, sculpture and modelling.

All members of the Earlscliffe community are welcome to attend the Wednesday afternoon SCS club which provides an opportunity for free-style creative expression – whether the students are accomplished artists or simply keen to try a new skill.

The Earlscliffe Creative Arts Academy participates in many workshops, such as the Creative Folkestone Triennial Projects. We make good use of our very arty location in Folkestone – an area that is well known for its wealth of artistic enterprises, music, theatre, and boutique shops. We routinely visit the art galleries and museums and the Frieze International Art Fair in London, for a little extra inspiration.

Our students are also given the opportunity to enter National Art and Photography Competitions such as the RA Young Artists Summer Exhibition and the Portrait of Britain.

Earlscliffe encourages our students to express themselves creatively as it is not only great for mental health but also helps to develop communication, critical thinking and presentation skills.
