Ages 5 to 7.5 years
This is the group for our youngest creative minds. Here,we offer age appropriate Art experiences that dip and skim playfully through the surface of the fundamentals of Drawing and Painting, offering very tasty and varied nibbles. Their imagination is kept ignited and there is nothing more real and beautiful for us! Our endeavour is to just help them express it in a way they can be proud of. This class nurtures their love for art, makes real life connections and prepares them for further exploration that comes next.
Fee: £10 X No of weeks
(Weeks per term: Autumn -14, Spring-11 and Summer-11)
(Sessions are 1 hour long and fee includes all materials apart from the drawing book.
Ages 7.5- 12years and 12- 16 years
This is the group for our Explorers. We dive deeper and scout all through and around the subject, viewing it from various perspectives. Our weekly art trails lead them through new subjects and mediums, making valuable connections to their own other interests outside the class. This class empowers them with a deeper and skillful understanding of the fundamentals of the subject.
The 12-16 years group are offered more lessons on observational drawings along with the regular curriculum for the younger groups. This enables older children who are unable to commit to the 2.5 hrs long 12yrs+ group to continue to enjoy and grow through their art journey.

Most of our Art school lessons are covered but emphasis is more on observational drawing in these groups. The curriculum is more flexible to allow for groups to work on projects of their choice / competition entries /develop portfolios etc.

Our Program Art Peek is tailored towards the after school clubs that we run in local schools exclusively for the school's children. Art Peek gives children a lovely, concise art learning experience and touches on the different elements of our full curriculum. Our After School Club Leaders deliver this program in our local schools.
'Art Peek ' is a wonderful opportunity for Year 1 to Year 6 children to experience various art forms, mediums, artists and skills.
Each term, Art Peek introduces children to various mediums like water colours, Soft pastels, Oil Pastels, Charcoal,Acrylic paints , Print Making etc. Children will also be introduced to specialized Art and Crafts like Mosaics, Plaster casting, Mod roc Modelling,. and gain insight into the works and life of one Master Artist and then create their own art inspired by their works.
If you are a parent or teacher and think your school would benefit from an Art Peek Art Club, please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org and we would be delighted to help.
We also support and encourage children to apply for the 'Discover Arts Award' which is offered by the Trinity College of London for an additional fee as we are also advisers to Arts Award and our Art peek program covers the requirement for the award.
We also offer 1-2-1 sessions with our teachers, who can come to your home and guide you through specific projects.
Our teachers can cater to a wide range of capabilities , help a beginner and challenge the experienced! We have helped many children develop their portfolios. These portfolios have then won scholarships and competitions for the young artists!
These sessions can also be gifted to some one arty you know!
