Student information and opportunities
Rowan is dedicated to providing a safe and enriching environment where adults with learning disabilities can develop new creative skills, working alongside professional artists.
We are an active part of the art community in Cambridge, taking part in a number of exhibitions throughout the year to showcase and sell our art and crafts. We also stage performances for our music and drama students.
Our students can take part in a range of creative workshops:
… and our forest school, Rowan Rangers.
Rowan is open Monday to Friday, 9am to 3pm, for 50 weeks of the year. Weekly half-day and full-day student places are available.
We offer free taster sessions for prospective students, to experience daily studio activities for themselves before making a decision. This enables us to assess a student’s needs, how they fit in with the environment and with other students and whether we can meet the needs of a potential student.
Students need to bring a packed lunch, but we offer free tea and coffee.
We do not provide personal care, so if required, a personal one-to-one supporter must accompany the student. The entire Rowan building is wheelchair accessible.
