Art Classes for Children

In these classes, we’re not aiming to make nice pictures for the wall, although that does happen along the way! Instead, we’ll be guided by the idea that art-making is a place to explore, where children express themselves while learning to use techniques and materials.

What we'll do

We'll focus on one theme over 4 weeks, exploring different techniques and approaches each week. Children use a wide variety of good quality materials including watercolour, acrylic, collage, oil pastels and pencils.

Children are very intuitive and their unedited ability to make art is a huge inspiration to me. The classes are based around getting children to channel that intuition and create freely. To achieve this I might play a game with them by calling out vague instructions.

Making art together in small groups has a lovely energy and dynamic, allowing children to do new and unexpected things.

The details...

Small groups of 3 to 5 children, offering more individual support.
Two age groups to give more focussed learning.
Expert tuition, sharing knowledge gained from an extensive creative career and 2 years teaching school children.
Classes take place in my kitchen studio, creating a relaxed environment.
