Service Description

Thursdays from 4.30pm - 6.00pm 10 Weeks from Thursday 20th January to Thursday 31st March (no class Thursday 17th February). ​ This course fosters a nurturing environment that encourages creative practice, and expert drawing guidance. Our classes are small, which means that each child has plenty of time with the tutor. ​ Jaya has over 20 years of art teaching experience, and specialises in teaching children. ​ “All too often the principles of drawing are skimmed over in mainstream school settings. These courses offer children time and engagement to further expand creatively and strengthen their drawing resolve. It’s a place and time where you get personal tuition, advice, demonstrations, support from peer group, and really begin to engage with the drawing process.” ​ Together the group will look at technique, style and subject, as well as weaving in art history focuses. There is time and opportunity to interact with the discipline of drawing, taking it right back to the basics and building up from there. ​ In previous terms the group looked at process, developing different starting points for work (primary, secondary and so on), as well as the figure composition, different ways to present work, self-portraits/portraiture and Frieda Kahlo. Working in a variety of different materials and looking at many different subjects, this course will inspire your child! Returning students, please note that the class is now an hour and a half long. All materials are provided. Please see the 'About' section on our website for Terms & Conditions and Covid-19 Guidelines.
