Drawing comes naturally to young children, and is fundamental to their learning, growth, and understanding of the world around them. The Drawing Clubs help children retain and develop these drawing abilities and sustain their enthusiasm for self-expression within an artist-led environment.
Our weekend Drawing Classes are open to children who have a passion for drawing and who are able to commit to attending a weekend class. The Drawing Classes are led by professional artists and experienced in teaching children.
Artists and designers use drawing in this way to kick-start their creative thinking, considering the application of drawing and its various uses across disciplines. From the interdisciplinary perspectives of archaeology, Animation, Illustration and landscape architecture, this innovative courses highlights how drawing is used in the professional world.
Regular drawing at any age can enhance focus and concentration and increase self-esteem, and this can be especially beneficial for school-age children.
