Many kids and youths want to express themselves but dont know where to begin! around 2 years ago, I had just left my youth work position in prestwick to run our home business full time. I had a little more free time and decided that I wanted to expand and help the kids, youths and adults to learn how to express their creative skills.
Through teaching simple and fun tutorials as basic courses, then progressing with the skills that students have learned, we have found and built a formula that has worked for over 50 students of all ages. All our classes are taught in a relaxed, step by step mannor, which after 4 or 5 weeks students have not only learned how to paint their very own painting but also a wealth of skills and techneques to help them unleash your creative talent .
Here's what some of our students had to say:
"It was great to chat and to be listened to" ~Greg
"Thank you for not giving up on me and giving amazing encouragement" ~ Claire
"It felt good that someone took an interest in me!" ~ Ryan
"I felt supported and encouraged with each work that I did" ~Amy
Because of the art classes I am getting ready to go onto university to study art full time. John gave me all the skills and encouragement I needed to be able to do this. He also went above and beyond when it came to my application process, to prepair me for what I would be asked. - Jackie
