The Cass Art Student Day is back for 2016! We’re touring the country with fantastic freebies, art goodies and a host of arty entertainment. Plus, we’ll be bringing you exclusive offers and discounts throughout the year with your Cobalt Blue Card.

So what are you waiting for? It’s time to come on down, and stock up for your new year at art school!


To celebrate the start of the new academic year, we’re giving a 20% discount off EVERYTHING in our stores across the country and goodie bags jam packed with art materials worth £40 with every purchase over £20.

And of course, in true Student Day style, there will also be free food, exclusive local offers and lots of photo booth posing throughout the day.


As well as some great savings and offers, we’ll be giving away free goodie bags, packed with artist’s quality materials, when you spend £20 in store.

Art materials include a Winsor and Newton Tin filled with drawing tools, a Winsor and Newton Pigment Marker, a Royal Talens Ecoline Ink Jar and Brush Pen, a Golden Acrylic Paint, a set of Staedtler Neon Pencils, an Acco Blister Pack, a Mars Lumograph and a Liquitex Paint Pen. But we don’t want to give it all away – there’ll be some surprises in there too!

What’s more, you’ll bag our latest colour in the Cass Art Tote range, the dazzling pink Opera Rose, available with every purchase on Student Day!


We’ve got a line up to keep you entertained all day, including music from a live DJ, live bands and even a kitten play area to relax with some furry friends after your shopping frenzy.

Plus, we've teamed up with the biggest brands across the UK to bring you exclusive treats and offers in selected stores. 

Grab a bag of Propercorn to keep hunger at bay as you pick up the latest offers from Newspaper Club and The Other Art Fair. Take a time out with a coffe from 3 Three's Lounge or relax with a tea from Bluebird Tea. When you've shopped til you've almosted dropped, share your goodies over a mexican platter at Chipotle or delicious wrap from Wrapchic.


Remember, you need to bring a valid student ID. If you have a Cobalt Blue Student Card with us, make sure you bring it along, and if not – don’t worry – you can sign up for one on the day!

Check out the Cass Art Events Page for all the latest updates and events as our Student Days are revealed over the next few weeks. We’ll also be updating this blog regularly to keep you up to date, so watch this space…


We want to see your Student Day selfies! Don’t forget to use the hashtag #CASSARTSTUDENTDAY and upload your snaps to our social channels.

Please tell us what you think on the day – in the queue, the shop, even once your home and unpacking your new materials! Wherever you are, we want to hear from you!

We’ll be snapping away on the day to show everyone what they’re missing on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Get your smart phones at the ready – it comes but once a year!

But most importantly – have fun, spread the word and get start being creative!
