Developing Art Skills: 8-12 years
Developing Art Skills: 8-12 years

These classes are conducted in a fun-filled environment where students will learn a variety of creative processes. This class will encourage students to engage with different materials that will then broaden their understanding of art-making. 

Developing Art Skills is also for children who love and are serious about drawing and painting.  They will learn different art techniques and use various types of drawing paper and canvas. 

Each tutor designs their own programme for the term catered specifically for the 8-12 age range and the activities change each term with many students returning to these classes term after term.
