Aimed at children between the ages of 5-14, Art Club nurtures creativity, fosters a problem solving approach to projects and builds in lots of fun!
Your child will
explore the world through drawing, painting and making
develop observation skills and manual dexterity
extend both verbal and visual communication skills
develop problem solving skills
Participating in arts activities is linked to an increased sense of well-being. The act of making art allows children to explore how they feel about things and the world around them. This helps them to understand who they are and how they fit into the world.
If you are interested in working towards a qualification, you may be interested in Arts Award. This is a scheme promoted by the Arts Council to help children and young adults gain recognition for their artistic skills. At the higher levels, the award counts towards UCAS entry points.
