Come and see it for yourself..... What can I say, we are place makers! we love creating classrooms that inspire young artists. And because we have been running our classes for 18 years we have found the perfect recipe. Our studio is perfect for all creative needs, we have the necessary facilities including a toilet and wash up area within our walls, plenty of space to create with 20 full size easels and wide tabletops. Our lounge and library is a great place to relax and discuss art themes and ideas, the students have access to a wide range of Art books and activities while they wait. Older students are always welcome to bring their iPads for idea hunting we have free wifi in the studio for all our students. Why choose an after school art class as a regular activity? The benefits of kids being engaged in art activities are much vaster than just providing them with the opportunity to be creative. Children's art classes are helpful in building children's confidence, problem solving and critical thinking.
