New Classes

September 12, 2017

Hi Parents and Children,

 

Wow, what a week it has been. I'm excited to announce that yesterday SketchBetter opened its brand new studio at Alexandra School. Next week, we're launching two brand new art clubs for children (5-10s), juniors (11-16s) and a special course for adults (16+) too. Here's all the information you'll need. Email me at hello@sketchbetter.org for all bookings. I look forward to seeing many of you soon.

Beginners’ Art Club for 5-10s

Day: Thursdays, 4-5.30pm      

Dates: 21 Sept - 14 Dec (12 weeks)

Teacher: Kate Andrews

 

This course takes children on an introductory journey through the nature of creativity and human imagination. There are experiments, collaborations, projects and mindfulness. We learn about artists, art movements and the range of possibilities art offers us. Children learn craft skills including observational drawing and watercolour painting, and social and emotional development skills such as empowerment, teamwork and resillience.

 

Each weekly class starts and ends with a mindful activity and includes group and individual elements. Children are each given their very own sketchbook and art bag, and are encouraged to bring them each week for feedback - introducing them to self-directed study. 12 weeks, no club during half term.
