Let's Make Art: High quality, well-resourced art sessions for children aged 2 - 11+
Karen and Alice launched Let's Make Art in the summer of 2012. As parents we understand that it can be a struggle to think of new ideas for creative play and the mess created can be daunting. Let's Make Art gives children the opportunity to discover and create high quality artwork in a safe and friendly environment, allowing young creative minds to soar.
We believe creativity strengthens all aspects of learning: by encouraging your child's creativity, success in other areas of their life will follow. The classes we provide introduce and develop the concepts of colour, texture, composition and technique. As well as developing fine motor and problem-solving skills, your children will get messy and have fun with a wide variety of art materials, proudly taking home plenty of masterpieces to show friends and family.
