Create your own  

"slogan" art, and

make a statement

for something that

you care about.



Perseverance is sticking with things. It means being hardworking and finishing what is started, despite barriers and obstacles that arise. 


When you next find yourself struggling with a project, pay attention to putting in lots of effort, rather than focusing on a perfect final outcome.

Word of the Month


In Art, value means the lightness or darkness of tones or colours. White is the lightest value; black is the darkest. Look how 7 year old Esther used charcoal and geometric shapes to create this beautiful value study.

Esther, age 7


Experiment in a sketchbook, with pencil and charcoal, and see what you can create using value: dark, medium and light.

Art History

Albert Einstein

Albert Einstein was a German scientist, and one of the most famous scientists the world has ever seen! He was incredibly creative and came up with ideas no-one else had ever done before! He once said "Creativity is contagious. Pass it on!"
