Prior booking for all classes is essential. Classes are £6 per session, payable in half term blocks. Each half term will follow a different theme. Through this theme we will explore different artists and create a range of different artwork using different materials and techniques.
Ages 7-12 years
Sessions run every Saturday during term time. There are three sessions 9-10am, 10.10-11.10am and 11.20-12.20pm. All three sessions are exactly the same with a full age range of children in each.
The children in these sessions follow and complete the 'Explore' Arts Award
Ages 11-16 years
Sessions run every Monday and Saturday during term time. There are three sessions 5 - 6pm, 6 - 7pm and 7 - 8pm on Monday and one session 12.30-1.30pm on Saturday.
During these sessions the children complete more involved artwork using more specialised equipment.
Children in the Saturday session and 5-6pm Monday session follow the 'Bronze' Arts Award, the children in the 6-7pm session follow the 'Silver' Arts Award and the children in the 7-8pm session follow the 'Gold' Arts Award. As part of the awards the children will complete a range of artwork, research different artists and arts organisations, review an arts event and also teach a skill that they have learnt to others. We have strong links with local artists, 'Sherwood Art Week' festival and with the 'Nottingham Light Night' event which provides us with perfect opportunities to complete these requirements.
Children can join this session without previous attendance to the Saturday Group. They do not need to have completed any previous Arts Award to take these qualifications.
