Art for All

Ref: C3125595

In this course, students will be invited to join a friendly and creative environment. We will take time to get to know individual students and find out more about what skills you would like to learn and how we can help you on your creative journey. There will be a broad range of materials available, with exciting new themes introduced each week in the hope to find something to get everyone inspired. In these classes we also take time to have discussions about art and fun quizzes too. The classes are open to all abilities and we can be on hand to help students with any aspirations they have. These sessions can also get messy too as in the past we have experimented with Spray Paint and huge paintings that cover the size of the floor. We aim to encourage students to develop confidence through play, experimentation and fine tuning those skills too.
