Develop each child's artistic expression and creativity
Drawing, painting, collage, mixed media, printmaking and sculpture
Enhance your child's creative expression and boost their confidence
We have a comprehensive Children's Art Programme with after-school classes that focus on teaching art in a fun and practical way.
As a not-for-profit our classes are extremely affordable when compared with other after-school activities as materials are included in the fees.
School Holiday Workshops
Build imagination, explore and experiment
We limit class sizes so that we can explore challenging subjects in more depth than during term time. Yet our class design and tutor skills allow children with more limited experience to also join in.
The classes are also a fun opportunity for children whose term time routines are fully booked, to give art a go.
All of our tutors are practicing artists, many also have formal art qualifications and extensive experience in working with children of all ages. We have run classes for eight years and workshops for four years. Our small class sizes enable our tutors to cultivate a relationship with each child to identify their particular strengths.
Many children have been attending our classes for over 5 years and have placed siblings on waiting lists to guarantee them a place when they are old enough to join. Parents often tell us that our art class is their child’s favourite after school activity.
Our classes are designed around age groups that develop basic skills that become progressively more sophisticated and challenging the longer children participate. With a range of age groups catered for, children can transfer to an older group as they need to.
For the range of subjects covered, different materials offered and as a not-for-profit, our classes are priced very reasonably and most include each term's material fee.
