About Art Explorers (CSC249)

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

What will you learn on this course?

On this one-day course, the children will paint, glue, splatter, and design as they explore the wild, wonderful world of art!

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

The participants 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.

The course tutor demonstrates techniques, assists individuals with the development of their ideas, and advises on how to create their final pieces of work.

Working, both in groups and on individual projects, the students will develop their confidence and team working skills as well as their creativity!

By the end of the course, each child will have produced their own masterpieces to take home, bursting with colours, shapes, and visual stories to show their family and friends.

Who is this course for?

This one-day course is suitable for children aged 6 to 11 years old. It is open to all ability levels. We provide a learning support worker and all our staff our DBS checked. Parents are not expected to accompany children on the course.

The course is accessible for children of all abilities who can participate in practical art and craft activities. A parent or carer may assist their child if required but must book a complimentary ticket if attending a course to provide support. The room is wheelchair accessible.

Age ranges are set carefully to consider key age developments, materials being used, and course stimulus. It is very important that age ranges are not too large or across key stages and therefore need to be adhered to.

Do you need to bring anything?

All course material and equipment are provided. Children should dress appropriately as some visual art workshops can get a bit messy.

Please note that lunch is not provided. Children will need to bring their own lunch to eat on a supervised one-hour break.
