Wild Things Art has a fantastic, high-quality art programme that helps children build self-esteem and discover and express their individuality. The students develop an understanding of their own creative process to overcome challenges and solve problems and learn about whole lot of amazing, inspirational artists and their techniques along the way.

We generally work on 4-5 projects during the course which is based on a different theme each term. It is so rewarding to see them develop and grow in this open and supportive environment. I LOVE teaching art and I feel extremely lucky to be able to run this programme in my local community.

We are able to cater for students at all levels of ability as class sizes are limited.
