About Art Explorers (Summer)

Develop art skills and get messy in this mixed media course where kids will get a chance to embrace a diverse range of traditional and experimental arts and crafts activities.

What will you learn on this course?

On this course, children will have the opportunity to experiment with a variety of different artistic materials, learn new creative techniques and develop their existing skills.

They will work on a variety of projects and are encouraged to work through many elements of the creative process, such as generating ideas, and designing and making prototypes before producing their finished work.

A range of artistic techniques are taught on this course, including pottery, sculpture, 3D modelling, decorative arts, collage, and printmaking. Working both in groups and on individual projects, the students will develop confidence and team working skills. The course tutor demonstrates techniques, assists individuals with the development of their ideas, and advises on how to create their final pieces of work.

By the end of the course, each child will have produced on large piece and a selection of smaller artworks to take home.

Who is this course for?

This course is suitable for children aged 6 to 12 years. It is open to all ability levels and children don’t need any previous experience. Parents are not expected to accompany children on these courses. All our staff are DBS checked.

The course is accessible for children with disabilities who can participate in practical art and craft activities.
