A note from me....

Coronavirus has affected every corner of the world in almost every possible way. For me, my small business teaching creative classes had just started to gain momentum when everything changed. Now having worked digitally for the last year or so - I am back this Summer with face to face teaching.

 

I am CRAZY looking forward to being around enthusiastic creative students again. My online shop and Youtube channel have played such an important part that they will continue alongside my venue based classes. So now you have many different ways to get involved with a creative activity.

 

The video tutorials available for free you can watch from my YouTube channel at home in your own time at your own leisure over and over again - using the pause and rewind function when you need to. To accompany the classes I offer various KITS which provide pretty much everything you need to get started.

Please find below details and a summary of each class along with links to both my shop and the tutorials. If you click TUTORIAL to go direct to my YouTube channel and SUBSCRIBE which allows you to see all my videos. Any questions or queries about these - or indeed any questions about my videos or tips or advice - please please please get in touch it would be great to hear from you. Stay creative & stay safe. Cx

A parent & child arts workshop aimed at all children from around age 5 upwards

Funding for Arts is disappearing from schools which is a disaster! Artistic skills and creative thinking are the future. As kids manipulate a paintbrush, their motor skills improve. By counting pieces and colours, they learn the basics of math. When children experiment with materials, they dabble in science. Most importantly, kids feel good while they are creating, art helps boost self-confidence and work parts of the brain like no other activity can.
