Combating inequality through creative and cultural education
We empower young people to smash through glass ceilings. Talent is everywhere, but opportunity is not. We help young people to dream big encouraging the youth of today to become the change makers of tomorrow.
Firmly grounded in 30 years of creative arts education practice, with award winning results, we are now working hard in the community to address the two key societal challenges of the day–inequality and poor wellbeing.
Find out how you can tap into the arts to address both of these challenges.
Bookings open for Summer 2023 art clubs
Summer Holiday Camp with Art at the Heart
Following on from our popular term-time clubs, we’re introducing a BRAND NEW one-week Holiday Camp! For children aged 8-12, who have a love of creative adventure and learning through fun.
Welcome to A Week in the Life of an Art Student!
Yes, you’ll be making amazing art, but the benefits of joining our camps are far broader and more wide-reaching:
Making art is fun! – research shows that making art for just 40 minutes can reduce stress levels in most people
Creativity – art teaches you to observe closely and notice things – this is the first step towards creativity
Thinking outside the box – we look at new ways of using familiar materials and develop a sense of adventure and exploration
Cultural capital opens doors. We believe every child has the right to benefit from arts-rich experiences.
Short Courses and Workshops
Learn to draw like a Pro! Join Art at the Heart CIC every Tuesday in August at Olton Library in our drawing focused Summer Holiday Art Club!
This 5 week in-person art course will take you through a step-by-step guide to teach you different skills and techniques to make your drawings realistic, expressive and spectacular.
Check out our full programme of short courses and workshops for young artists ages 5-16! Workshops are online and in-person, during holidays and term-times– there is a session to suit everyone!
