ArtStart Summer Art School

Drawing is the central starting point for all classes at ArtStart. We aim to encourage children to draw from observation and their imagination. By introducing the work of well known artists, art movements and crafts from different cultures we learn new techniques from block printing to heat transfer dyes to needle felting. And take home our finished piece at the end of each workshop.

Our key aim is for students to feel empowered by their ability to experiment freely with materials, solve problems and reflect on the work they make. Each class has a different theme so students are welcome to attend on multiple days.  Children get a chance to explore their imagination while experimenting with new materials and techniques.

Our morning art class 10am-11.30am (1.5hrs) will be open to children aged 5-8yrs. Our afternoon art class 1pm-3pm (2hrs) will be open to children aged 8-11yrs. This way we hope to get children of similar ages in the same classes!
