HOLIDAY CLASSES
Our holiday classes have been running for eighteen years this year. They are as much of a joy to teach as to attend. Everyone who spends a week at The Art Club can learn new techniques and make new friends.
We spend the week focusing on a main project, so students gather information in sketchbooks to use for working on at the studio. This teaches students how to use a sketchbook and observe from real life, rather than using 2D images. Planning a composition or designing a sculpture or textile pattern is also part of a process that helps towards understanding the process of creating a piece of art. We take small groups give everyone plenty of assistance and help to improve their skills and teach many new techniques.

AFTER SCHOOL CLASSES AND TERM DATES

Start of term: Tuesday April 21st - Monday June 29th inclusive

CURRENT PROJECTS

Bird watercolours and sculptures. Our classes have been working on drawing and painting British birds using watercolour techniques. The bird paintings were used as inspiration to create wire armatures for a paper covered wire sculpture. This creates an elegant likeness of each bird, the results are amazing so far.

BOOKING YOUR CHILD’S PLACE

All spaces are now being offered to the waiting list including children that attended the summer holiday weeks, which were very successful and a lot of fun too.

NEW PORTFOLIO CLASS

Our new portfolio class is aimed at helping to demystify the process of building a portfolio and developing a quality sketchbook to the standards required for gaining entrance to art colleges and other further education courses. We will aid students by giving examples, demonstrations and tutored projects which will build on and enhance existing work.

  • Classes last for two hours and numbers are kept small to give an excellent teacher to student ratio.
  • All materials provided, includes sketchbook.

    Hi, what age are your classes for? My son is 8 and keen to learn but I wonder if he’s not a wee bit too young. Please could you also let me know the address where your classes take place. Thank you. Carola Eyber
