Come and join us for The Art Box! Each week, our friendly tutors will introduce you to an exciting new art project that you can make and do at home! We’ll let you know what equipment and materials you will need for each week’s class ahead of time, so you have plenty of time to prepare. We’ll be keeping the materials for these classes as simple as possible, and using things that you may already have at home. Keep an eye on our website and Facebook page where we’ll post a materials list for the The Art Box on Mondays.

In each week’s class, the tutor will introduce the activity with a demonstration and show you some examples to get you inspired, and there will also be an opportunity to ‘show and tell’ the artwork you’ve made in the previous week.

Best of all, the activities you take part in could lead to you achieving a Discover Arts Award*, meaning you’ll receive a lovely certificate in the post!*Please get in touch for further information about Arts Awards.

Our Youth Arts Classes this term are bit different to usual. We’re
currently making some improvements to our building, so as we can re-open
safely and welcome you all back all as soon as possible. This means
however that all of our classes this term will be held on-line, we’re
calling these ‘Distance Learning’ classes and we’ve included a bit of
information on how these classes will run below.

How will it work?

We’ve been hard at work throughout lockdown to re-design our courses
and workshops so we can continue to run while our building remains
closed. Our ‘Distance Learning’ courses for children and young people
will run using a combination of Zoom workshops and information and
resources being made available through our website and Facebook page.

Here’s how to get involved:

Step 1: Parents/Carers! Get in touch to book a place
on a course for your young person/s. We’re not able to get to the phone
right now, so please email

Step 2: We will send you a code to enable you to
access a special area of our website where you can access resources and
find out how to join our Zoom workshops.

Step 3: Term will start the week of 28th September
2020. And each course will run for 6 weeks. Each week a materials list
will be available on our website and will be posted to our Facebook page
so as you’ll know what materials we’ll be using in the class ahead of
time. The class will then run as a 1 hour long Zoom workshop on the
stated day/time.

Cost: This term our youth arts Classes are FREE,
however if you feel you’d like to help us out, you can make a donation
to the charity via one of our fundraising pages.
