Term Time Classes


Our term time classes are booked and paid for on a half-termly basis. Sessions last for an hour and fifteen minutes and are led by experienced arts educators, with support from assistants with creative backgrounds. Class sizes are limited to ensure plenty of individual support and guidance. 

Primary classes are £11 per session which includes all materials, sketchbooks and refreshments. We follow the AccessArt Primary Curriculum, which is devised by experienced arts educators (details of the current pathways below).

Key Stage 3/4 courses are £12 per session- Emerald and Indigo Class are designed to complement the Key Stage 3 and 4 art curriculum, whereas Cerise Class is an alternative class for secondary students who don’t necessarily want to follow such a structured session and would rather work more independently on their own projects with input and support from the class leader. 

Explore and Bronze Arts Award courses are £13 per session, which covers the cost of specialised tuition, arts logs, moderation and certification fees. Silver and Gold Arts Award courses are £14 per session, as these require a greater degree of support and assessment. Courses are run by qualified Arts Award Advisers.

Online classes are £7 per session- they are delivered over Zoom and last for one hour. A list of materials will be provided, and we aim to devise lessons that require only basic resources. Students are also able to sign up for recordings only so that the sessions can be done at a time that suits them- this is £5 per session.

Home Learning classes are £11 per session and are mixed age groups- we plan sessions inspired by the students’ interests and by the pathways followed by the after school classes.

We offer free trial sessions– prospective students are welcome to come along for a visit to see if they would like to join us! For more information or to book, please get in touch using our contact page, or by emailing hello@artivitystudios.co.uk.

Term 4 Pathways

Week commencing 20th February- week commencing 27th March (6 weeks)

Our Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 classes will be on the ‘Exploring Watercolour’ pathway. In this pathway, children are introduced to watercolour through an open and exploratory approach. Children not only discover what watercolour can do, how it acts and how they can control it, but also how the watercolour itself can help reveal the ‘story’ of the painting.

Our Year 3 and 4 classes will be on the ‘Cloth, Thread and Paint’ pathway. In this pathway children are introduced to artists that combine paint and sewing, art and craft, to make work. Children explore how these artists use fabric, paint and thread to make work in response to landscapes (and sometimes the people within those landscapes). Children are invited to start by creating an underpainting on cloth, using paint in a fluid and intuitive way. They then go on to explore sewing not as a precise technical craft, but as an alternative way to make intuitive, textural marks, over the painted backgrounds. Sketchbooks and drawing are used as a way for pupils to discover their own personal response to the landscape used as stimulus, and as a way to explore mark making, colour and composition.

Our Year 5 and 6 classes will be on the ‘Mixed Media Land and Cityscapes’ pathway. In this pathway, children are introduced to the idea that artists don’t just work in studios- instead they get out into the world and draw and paint from life, inspired by the land and cityscapes where they live. Pupils also see how artists use their creative freedom to explore ways of working which involve different materials and media. Pupils extend and adapt existing sketchbooks so that they can make drawings/paintings at different scales and ratios. They are enabled to take creative risks, explore and experiment, without the pressure of having to produce an end result.Pupils are given the freedom to use mixed media in ways which suit them and their subject matter.

Our Key Stage 3 and 4 classes will be honing their skills in oil painting. We will be experimenting with a range of different techniques to learn how the medium behaves and how we can achieve different results. We’ll then put what we’ve learnt to use by creating still life paintings on canvas boards.

Our online classes will work with a variety of drawing, painting and collage techniques on various themes.

We keep our class information as up to date as we can- if you’re interested in joining us, please get in touch via the contact page and we can confirm space availability.
