Classes & Workshops

Painting, drawing, ceramics, printmaking, we offer classes for all ages.

About Our Classes

Developing creativity and self-confidence are at the core of our teaching. We deliver after-school classes and a Saturday art club in the term time and art workshops in the half term, Easter, Summer and Christmas holidays.

We follow a fine art interdisciplinary approach in painting, drawing, mixed media, collage, sculpture and printmaking. Our classes are project based, normally inspired by an artist or art movement, so there is a structure to the learning but the children are free create within the project, building  knowledge and skills and applying them to obtain their own outcomes.

Class sizes are up to 15 students for 1.5 hours.

Class Details:

  • Small class sizes of 15 students.
  • Three age groups: 5-11, 12-15, and 3–4.
  • All materials provided.
  • Electric pottery wheel and electric kiln.
  • We offer GCSE-level portfolio preparation.
