I just wanted to let you know that I run art workshops for children in Herne Hill, SE London (SE24). Our group is called Oh Art! and we have an open-ended and purposeful approach to art, inspired by Bruno Munari’s method and work, which we deliver through positive and gentle communication. The places we offer are limited to ensure a high quality experience for the children.
The session lasts for 1h 30min. Venue: SE24.
Costs: £10 p/ child. Siblings: £10 for first child, £5 for extra child.
The costs cover all materials, tuition, tea and coffee for parents/carers wishing to stay and learn but if you prefer to go, you can!
We’re raising funds to organise more projects with art and education for children.
Clothing: as with all messy artsy things, please bring appropriate clothes!
Group: as we focus on delivering quality teaching, we have limited places, 6 children per session.
Get in contact with us at ohartproject@ gmail. com to book your place, ask questions, etc.
Dates: We offer sessions on Wednesdays and Fridays from 10 to 11:30 or from 1:45 to 3:15.
