Oh Art! is happy to offer art sessions for children between 3-12 year olds, with a self-led and purposeful approach to creative exploration, inspired by Bruno Munari’s method and work, which we deliver through positive and gentle communication.
Will be holding these workshops twice this month. Our theme for this exciting workshops is COLLAGE!
Dates: Saturday 14th from 10-11:30 / Saturday 28th from 10-12.
The session lasts for 2 hours.
Venue: Herne Hill SE24.
Costs: £15 p/ child. Siblings: £15 for first child, £10 for second child. The costs cover all high quality materials, tuition and fruits for the children. Part of the fee is for raising funds to organise more art and education projects for children from all backgrounds. We have a special offer if you want to book both sessions: £25 p/child or siblings (2) £45.
Clothing: as with all messy artsy things, please bring appropriate clothes!
Group: as we focus on delivering quality teaching, we have limited places, 8 children per session. The physical space is a bit restricted, and we would like for the children to have plenty of space and freedom to explore and experiment. We have DBS checks and we have Child Protection training. If by special circumstances you wish to stay, let us know and we’ll try to accommodate everyone’s needs, not a problem at all!
