Creative Natives offers an inclusive, inspiring, fun space where young people can find their creative mojo. In our art studio based in Edinburgh, we work with 14-24 year-olds who want to express themselves through drawing and painting, sculpting, music making, animation, crafting and film making, or even picking up a paintbrush for the first time.
Typically, our young people may need some support to get over the door the first time but they quickly feel chill and are inspired to build on their existing skills or try something completely new!
“Before I found this place I didn’t leave the house at all. I only had one friend. On my first day I didn’t talk to anyone. This place is great – I highly recommend it! 10/10”
Creative Natives offers our participants the opportunity to build on existing creative skills, or try new arty things for the first time. The studio vibe is supportive, relaxed and informal: a place to form new friendships and unleash your creativity.
We foster an environment that encourages exploration, experimentation and artistic expression.
Our workshops are designed to ignite your imagination, unleash your artistic potential and nurture your passion for all things handmade.
Trips to galleries and places of interest give our young people the opportunity to socialise, laugh and learn whilst being inspired by cool works of art.
Gain valuable insights, guidance, and hands-on support to craft a standout portfolio that showcases your talents and achievements.
Creative Natives is a partnership project between Community Enterprise and Cyrenians.
It provides a space where young people, aged 14 to 24 years old, can grow their creative potential, confidence and connections in an Art and Design studio.
