These classes are fun, “hands-on,” exciting experiences for both children and adults.

We run regular art workshops for children and their guardians on Saturday afternoons during term time.

A child attends with a parent, grandparent, special caring adult or caregiver. Everyone then works on their own art projects separately at their own individual level.

Using imagination, observation and problem-solving skills, the children and adults experiment with materials and tools, making discoveries and expressing their ideas through paintings, clay sculpture, collage projects and in many other media.

One adult is required for every child. Class size is limited to 12 children.

What I'll learn

Children and adults will receive expert tuition, including the opportunity to take part in a wide range of stimulating activities based at our specialist facilities, workshops, and studios. Areas you will learn about can include:

  • photography (darkroom and digital)
  • graphic design
  • printmaking
  • textiles
  • fashion

New communication between the adult and child results from sharing creative experiences in this relaxed, fully supportive environment.
