Kids and Teen Art Club January creative highlights!

Monday regulars are growing in number. This group has developed amazing confidence using glue guns to realise their creative ideas. We started by exploring abstract cardboard collages, next they added slits added and together turned their individual pieces into a group sculpture. Its great to see the pride in what they accomplish each week. The month has been about exploring the built environment around them through playground design, houses and abstract 3D cardboard creations. 

Wednesdays group included collage work as well as all things architecture, miniature furniture including fridges, beds complete with snugglies, lifts and miniature rugs and furniture, even a slide into a loo, powered by the toilet!

We’ve started our new Create and Play Kids art club on Tuesdays. Suited for reception age to 7,  children move between creation stations and sensory play. They’ve made Goldfinches, dug for gold, created nests and winter lanterns were a firm favourite this month. As the name says Create and Play includes opportunities  for play, we offer building blocks and kapla for children to engage with between creating.  

During Thursday Let’s Make Art sessions led by Alice the children explored patterned stitches of Semamori and drawn patterns with wool onto adhesive cardboard. Weaving onto cups to make decorative pots.

Teens Art Club is another new addition which is proving to be very popular, led by Sarah Dennis, a Bristol based Paper cut artist. The teens are learning all about Print techniques,  from stamps to lino printing and stencil. Their confidence learning a new art technique has been wonderful to see in the calm Goldfinch workshop space.

We are looking forward to the next couple of weeks before Feb half term. All Holiday clubs are now up for booking as well as kids and teens art clubs all the way  to July!
