Our weekly, term time classes take place in our fully equipped Art Studio in Sherwood, Nottingham.
We follow the Arts Award scheme and I currently offer classes in four different levels - Explore Arts Award (aimed at 7-11 year olds), Bronze Arts Award (aimed at 10-14 years), Silver Arts Award (aimed at 12-16 years) and Gold Arts Award (aimed at 14+ years).
Prior booking for all classes is essential. Classes are £6 per session, payable in half term blocks.
For the Explore and Bronze Arts Awards we will follow a different theme each half term. Through this theme we will explore different artists and create a range of different artwork using different materials and techniques. The Silver and Gold Arts Award students are encouraged to set themselves their own 'Arts Challenge'. This is where they decide what art styles, techniques, materials they want to develop. The studio has everything they need and they are tutored and supported by myself at every step of the way.
