My art classes are a great opportunity for all children to be exposed to different forms of art and techniques. The classes are designed for all pre school ages, younger children will need support and encouragement from parents or carers while the older children will be able to enjoy  45 minute long classes independently. All ages will create a beautiful piece of art, which will be personal to them and a one off piece of artwork to take home.

Meet the artist
Each week my class will focus on a famous artist. We will use different materials, chat about different artists and create something amazing. Your little ones will be proud of their creations and will want to show off it friends and family. I will use different techniques when the classes are paint based and use an array of materials and methods, such as collage or craft. Using many different media and techniques will help develop a child’s ability to communicate and express themselves. When children have the opportunity to hold a pencil or paintbrush, their fine motor skills improve and their imagination can go wild. collecting materials, touching different textures and looking at colours will help children explore the world around them. Arranging and counting will introduce the child to basic maths and memory skills, while producing wonderful art and crafts. when children experiment with materials, such as mixing paint colours, they become exposed to science and creativity. Most important, art and crafts can a boost a child’s self esteem and make them feel proud of themselves, encouraging confidence.

Upcycling
The classes can include up cycling items from around the home creating something a child can use or display giving them a sense of achievement. Showing a child how to change an old or useless item into something useful and beautiful helps the basics of science and technology. In past classes the children have loved upcycling tin cans into vases, cup cakes cases into flowers and clothes pegs into giraffe’s and we’ve made bouncy snakes from paper plates, using paints, crayons, glue, scissors and stamps.

The celebration of national holidays and cultural awareness.
Celebrating national holidays and teaching our children about cultures through art and creative activities can highlight the wonderful world around them. Introducing special occasions can teach basic history to children, giving them an introduction to start to story telling and fantasy. We’ve done seasonal art like handprinted Easter Cards and we be do some great Halloween and Christmas art too, such labels for gifts and much more.
