Our unique Exploring Your Emotions Through Art and Mindfulness class is a fun, creative, learning experience for your children.

During this difficult time, it’s never been so important to help support or little ones and what better way to do this promote understanding through art and creativity.

This course gives your child the opportunity to explore and understand their emotions and feelings and how to deal with them through reflection, creativity and sharing.

Some children come to this class because they love art, some are shy or suffer anxiety, all are welcome and differences are celebrated. Through our semi-structured creative sessions, the children will feel valued and supported and will be given time and space to be themselves.

Our therapeutic art course is unique, giving children time to explore feelings through creativity.

We run different projects each week, all designed to teach the children how to begin to understand their emotions, how to talk about their feelings (through the art making for some) whilst helping them to feel confident and supported within the group.

Some projects are repeated in different ways to help exploration and understanding changing feelings.

Working with materials such as: raw clay, plaster, canvases, paints, buttons, wire and glass can benefit the children in many ways, helping them develop different skills which are helpful throughout their childhood.

In the 1.5 hr session, we start with a snack and then discuss any feelings or emotions the children might have had from their week, before working on the craft. At the end there is time for reflection and breathing exercises to promote calmness and reduce tension.

The group is small with a maximum number of 14 in the class of 6-11yr old children.

Parents are encouraged to leave the children while the workshop is on, our drop-in craft studio is open while the workshop is running, you are welcome to stay and have a cup of tea or coffee and even enjoy some drop-in crafts yourself!

What they should wear…..

We advise the children to wear some casual clothes you don’t mind them getting messy in.

What the parents say…

“My daughter loved the classes and enjoyed a lot,
For the first time we did not have to persuade her to go back every week
which is amazing as we tried lots of different courses before for many years,
Please keep organising them we will be definitely booking again!” Anna Oct 2019
“O has been attending The Art and Mindfulness course now for over 18 months!
I think that’s testimony to the course! Each run of the course is on a similar theme but activities vary so he’s loved going each time. It’s a brilliant opportunity to talk about feelings, warning signs and strategies to support, whilst doing art activities to promote self esteem. Amy is so positive and upbeat, she’s brilliant.” Kate Oct 2019
We look forward to seeing you soon.
