Expectations and Protocol

We are all here at stART studio to create art, make new friendships and have fun. We expect parents to provide a phone number so they can be contacted at any point during the session and also provide any other medical information about their child. We also request that parents drop off their child 5 mins before the session starts. This gives parents and the activity leader time to discuss any queries and check the children in. Parents must also be at the studio promptly for the end of a session. Please do come in and see what the students have been up to or stay and join in the fun (please note this would need to be pre-booked).

 

The hall is always being used by other groups in the community so we will need to vacate once the session is over. We expect all adults and children to be considerate of our space, materials, our fellow artists, staying within the village hall and cleaning up after themselves. In the event of a student (adult or child) showing unacceptable behaviour (disrespecting leaders of the group, or other students, physical roughness, inappropriate touching, leaving the premises, deliberate miss use of resources, using crude or inappropriate language) they will be told to stop. If the behaviour continues, the student’s parents will be contacted immediately and they will be asked to leave with no refund.

What happens at a

What happens at a
stART studio session?

We focus on the art process rather than the final product. Our classes aim to enable students to explore, develop skills they haven’t tried and experiment creatively and confidently within an art studio setting. A piece of work or several pieces are created during each session and if a student would like to take their work home they are very welcome. We begin our sessions by introducing our theme or stimuli then collaboratively create a piece of art which focuses on different techniques. Here the students can get messy and play with the resources and their ideas. We have a brief snack, refreshments are provided usually water, squash and biscuits and then we work independently, at the tables, to produce a piece of art of the student’s choice following the theme or being inspired by it.

What should my child bring?

What should my child bring?

Old clothes are essential. Even an old, oversized t-shirt or shirt is useful. We do provide refreshments of water, squash and a biscuit for a quick break but if your child wishes to bring their own snack and drink that is fine too.
