Mini Artists Class

A semi structured art class for 2-4 year olds. Helping your mini artists explore media and create pieces of art together, making sense of the world around them, learning colours, values, lines, shapes, forms, spaces and textures. Three different arts activities at each class for children to sit with their adult and make art together. Come along to a different, fun themed class each week and enjoy painting, sculpting and printing, without the mess at home! 

Our Mini Artist classes are designed to support your child's development by:

  • enhancing language skills, cognitive growth, motor skills, problem-solving and social interaction

  • building connections within the brain's neural pathways, which triggers a child's inclination for and ability to complete complex tasks

  • Encouraging exploration of colours, textures and shapes through various types of artistic tools and materials. 

 

All resources and first coffee/tea included.

Youth stART

Every Wednesday 3:45pm

(term time only)

recommended for 5-16 years old

If you have an arty, creative child who loves to sketch, paint, sculpt or print then bring them along to to Youth stART after school every Wednesday. An art class guiding young artists aged 6-16 to help them develop artistically. Immersing them in a creative programme that integrates core visual skills whilst allowing them to explore, independently a range of media, creating a finished piece to take home or given time to develop a project over a series of sessions.  All resources included and refreshments available to purchase.

 

Pay on the door  £7 per child

£35. for 6 classes

I am a qualified teacher having taught in schools for 14 years. Due to space we ask that you leave your child at the studio and collect them at 4:45 pm, giving you chance to do some jobs or relax in one of the local cafes only two doors away. A typical class begins with an introduction to the activity and appreciation of the style of art we are going to create to help inspire and pick apart the different stages of the technique or process. We then play drawing and observation games to get us warmed up. The children are then free to create their own art inspired by photographs, artefact or artists work. We have a snack break half-way through our session where the children can eat their own snack or buy a cold drink from the self serve area of the studio.
