After the October Half Term break, our art club reunites at a new time and in a new venue at Horsham Museum & Art Gallery (9 Causeway, Horsham, RH12 1HE).
The arts & crafts we do each week follows a set theme throughout the term (each term lasting 4-7 weeks), This term we are exploring the theme of Myself and the children’s view of their own identity and aspirations will be at the forefront of our creative crafts this term.
The aim of each class is to create something both beautiful and educational, that can be used at home by the child. Both the making of and the continued use of each project is designed to aid the childs learning & development. Parents will work with their child to complete their creative projects together, as the sessions are as much about the parent & child bonding as it is about learning a new art or craft skill.
We aim to keep our classes relaxed and free flowing, so your child is free to move between the art activity and playing with our selection of free play toys. However, we hope that they will find each session engaging and become fully emersed in the art project. Creating art is a fulfilling and mindful experience when fully engaged, so our classes aim to demonstrate to children and their parents the positive effect creativity can have on our wellbeing.
Each session the art activity will last between 45-60 minutes, followed by a healthy snack & drink and a chance to discuss our ideas and give feedback on each others work. This will be a positive, supportive environment to encourage self expression and help to build confidence in talking about creativity.
We are committed to using only high quality, non toxic & environmentally safe art materials, to honour our sustainable & waste conscious values as a Fair & Kind business. Many of our art materials come from local craft company, Tiny Land, who produce plant based paints & crafts which are fully baby & allergy safe and tested to toy safety standards. We’ve also sourced 100% wool felt and organic fabrics to use in our some of our creative projects.
Our Art Club classes are geared toward 2-5 year olds, but we welcome older home-educated children, as the projects we do each term can be tailored to suit all children.
Our session’s are best suited to children & parents who have an interest in art and wish to indulge in a concentrated and guided art project. There will be lots of room for self expression, within a gently lead ongoing project which lasts for 4-7 weeks.
Each week we will create a complete art work in it’s own right, but which also forms a part of the bigger project for the term. The child therefore benefits most if they are able to attend every session for the term, so we do prefer that families sign up on a termly basis, however pay-as-you-go visitors will also be welcomed if there is space available.
Our initial taster sessions are offered at £9.70 per child.
Subsequent sessions are priced £9.70 each if booked for a full half-term upfront, or on a pay as you go basis for £10.80 per session (pre-booking required each week to ensure we have space available)
Our price includes the cost of all the high quality art materials we will use, as well as the healthy snacks we share at the end of each session.
