DON’T MISS OUT - PLACES ARE STRICTLY LIMITED AND IN HIGH DEMAND. IT IS PREFERRED THAT CHILDEN ATTEND FOR A FULL TERM (8 CLASSES).
We prefer that children attend every class so that we can work on developing their skills and opportunities to express ideas. We do, however, understand if other commitments mean they have to skip a week or two. Let us know in advance if your child cannot attend so we don't prepare materials for them.

These classes will use one of the world’s most favourite art materials WATERCOLOUR. We will look at many different techniques and experiment with mixing media. We will also have a special guest artist to share their techniques with us.
These lessons are some of our most challenging and successful with our young artists. We share clever techniques to create realistic drawings.

Pastels are colourful and a lot of fun to use. We will create some stunning artworks in these classes where things can get a bit messy.

These classes are all about discovering different ways of making prints including Gelli plate prints, Monoprinting and printing on fabric.

Participants will make their own Light Catcher to take home. This workshop teaches participants to construct a suspended sculpture from found timber bought in from other sites.
Participants will select their timber and clean/sand to take the twig back to a raw state. Using wire and/or magik sculpt to achieve a balanced form, the mini sculpture is ready for spray painting white (if desired). Once dry, lead crystals (2) and a hanging thread are attached ready to take home.
