Creativity is the highest form of self-expression- encouraging our academic learning, self esteem and emotional health...
After School art classes
Complimenting the core curriculum for learning, The Creative Collaborative work with Schools to provide an after school art class, offering children the opportunity to express themselves and their creativity in a fun, relaxed and safe environment.
Our ART classes are artist-led weekly one-hour sessions following the School calendar, during which we will study various art and creative techniques where children can experiment with mark-making, texture & colour- gaining a good understanding of application using a variety of materials- from acrylic paints/watercolour /collage/ chalks/ inks etc.
Our projects are usually 4 - 6wks long, we study the work of a famous artist as our inspiration for our art piece such as a painting on canvas, pastel study or sculpture At the end of the project each child will get to take their artwork home!
Research indicates that art experiences can impact positively on confidence, self-esteem, personal, social, emotional development and behavioural health.
Key stage 1 & 2 (5 – 11 yrs) - 1 hour a week per term - Class size: 10 - 25 children
The Creative Collaborative supports teachers to build lessons aligned with the required curriculum for art and design. With our professional knowledge as trained and working artists we can provide innovative ideas and structure, combining varied techniques into one lesson. (Drawing, painting, textiles, sculpture, print, photography etc)
Where time and resources are limited for the school, The Creative Collaborative becomes an invaluable partner.

We provide advocacy to parents, teachers and students with lessons created by our professional artists stretched over 2 or more weeks- covering multiple masteries and artistic disciplines we create something exciting and unique to each class/ school. (eg; mural, sculptures, art installations etc)
The presence of an artist brings a cultural and creative vibrancy to learning- revealing a deeper understanding of a child’s needs, interests and identity through creative self expression- raising the standard of achievement and fulfillment for both teachers and students.
