Welcome to our after school Art Club for 6 - 15's!
Creativity should engage, inspire and challenge our children, and at Little Renaissance that is exactly what we want to achieve. Not to mention the therapeutic benefits that creativity gives, even at a young age.
Art and design encourages creative thinking, and learning skills and techniques in art help to give children a means of communication, albeit a visual one that helps them to express their ideas and process thoughts.
What will we be covering
Above all, we want these sessions to be fun for the children, engage them, educate them and challenge them. Our curriculum will be loosely based around the 3 key stages of learning, but with lots of breathing space. We will look at painting, drawing, collage, sculpting and printing whilst giving your child room to experiment. We plan and schedule each session before term starts, but we may change the topics part way through.
When and Where?
We work to term time only and meet after school. We have two classes running on a Wednesday for 12-15's with the first session running from 4-5.30pm and our second session from 5.45-7.15pm' The 6-11's art club meet on Thursday from 4-5.30pm.
The studio is based in Coney Hall Bromley, Kent, situated at the end of a residential garden. The studio accommodates 6 children comfortably. There are toilet facilities and we provide refreshments part way through the session.
