Summer Camp with Art at the Heart☀️
Following on from our popular term-time clubs, we’re introducing a BRAND NEW one-week Holiday Camp this August! 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
Cognitive Learning – we have ideas and learn to apply them to new themes
