The bag is filled with the world’s best brands, including Winsor & Newton, Liquitex, Ecoline, Golden and Posca. But we don’t want to give it all away – there’ll be some surprises in there too!
What’s more, you’ll bag one of our iconic colours from the Cass Art Tote Bag range, the dazzling pink Opera Rose or vibrant Linden Green, available with every purchase on Student Day!
ENTERTAINMENT & OFFERS
We’ve got a line up to keep you entertained all day, including magicians, music from a live band and breadth of creative workshops to experiment with the latest must-have materials.
Plus, we've teamed up with the biggest brands across the UK to bring you exclusive treats and offers in selected stores.
Need that caffeine fix to kick-start your shop? 3 Three’s Coffee, Department of Coffee & Social Affairs and Bluebird Tea Co will be keeping you on the go with a delicious range of tea and coffee. Keep hunger at bay with tasty treats from Boho Gelato, Pizza Hut and Finca Cuban street food.

Plus, artist Jake Spicer will be at Brighton and Islington Student Day, giving his top tips on how to draw and will be sketching personalised portraits on the day!
We've also got the latest products and materials from the world's best suppliers, ready and waiting for you to put them to the test. Winsor & Newton, Liquitex, Derwent, Pebeo and Daler Rowney will all be running workshops and live demonstrations for you to try their artists' materials.
THE LOW DOWN
Remember, you need to bring a valid student ID. If you have a Cobalt Blue Student Card, 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 or on our Social Media Channels for all the latest updates and events as we reveal the times and locations over the next few weeks. We’ll also be updating this blog regularly to keep you up to date, so watch this space…
SHARE ON SOCIAL
We want to see your Student Day selfies! Don’t forget to use the hashtag #CASSARTSTUDENTDAY and upload your snaps on our social media channels.
We would love to hear more about your experience in-store – in the queue, the shop, even once you're 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 only happens once a year!
But most importantly – have fun, spread the word and start being creative. We hope you enjoy the day as much as we do and we look forward to seeing you all there!
