Our children's art classes cater for 6-12 years of age. They are designed to ensure a balance between the innate abilities that all children possess while also creating a relaxed and fun learning environment that allows for natural and structured progression at their own pace. As all children are creative and love playing with drawing and painting, our aim is to build on this and to develop their abilities individually.
