A Saturday morning Art Class for children aged 6-12. Taught by Olesia (a proffessional, working artist) these classes aim to unlock children's creativity in a fun, supportive environment (genuine art studio)! Olesia is an expert and passionate print-maker, who, equipped with her own printing press, is keen to teach the joys of printing - which is ideal for small hands. During this course, children can also expect to learn how to draw and paint using pencil, marker pens and gouache. They will be encouraged to express themselves, experiment and try out new things.
Class sizes are small, with between 3 - 8 students, meaning lots of opportunities for individual attention.
"Every child is an Artist; the problem is how to remain an Artist once [they] grow up."
- Pablo Picasso
Parents are requested to drop their children off between 10am - 10.15 (set-up time) and collect by 12 noon.
