Jack&Atticus Room for Art.jpg

So proud to introduce The Room for Art at Jack & Atticus. An art space for all ages and abilities.

 

If you are new to art or want to develop your skills then this is the place for you. A place to get creative, collaborate and be part of the Jack & Atticus community.

 

The Room for Art is a place to explore and experiment with art in a fun and relaxed environment. Learn to draw with confidence as we try out different techniques from the basics of drawing to developing sketching skills, looking at shape tone and colour, paint techniques, still life, print making, collage, art as therapy, illustration for books and much much more. All materials will be provided so you can just turn up and make much needed room for art in your lives.

 

We will be running a wide range of art classes from adult courses, children’s workshops, art as therapy sessions, corporate well-being sessions and peri-natal classes. Head over to the website for more information or pop into the shop and have a chat about what you are looking for and what would suit you.

 

We are so looking forward to seeing you soon. There is always room for art.

ART AS THERAPY                                                                                           

 

Creativity is a brilliant way to start a conversation you will be guided through different approaches and ideas to start a conversation about how we can use creativity to help our own mental health, strengthen emotional resilience and help with coping strategies (in work and at home) to aid relaxation and mindfulness through the art making process.  

 

The main focus in therapeutic sessions is to take a break, take a breath, make some art and have some fun (definitely no experience or background in art is necessary or expected either).

ADULT ART CLASSES                                                                         

 

All the art classes at Jack & Atticus have the emphasis on the individual, allowing each participant to express themselves while building confidence in their art making. The classes are for all abilities and we welcome all to make their mark, explore and experiment with the art materials.

 

We will look at different techniques from the basics of drawing to developing sketching skills, looking at shape tone and colour, paint techniques, still life, print making, collage, art as therapy, illustration for books and much much more. There is no right or wrong way of making art – just your way. So come along and have some fun, take a breath, relax and make some art.

CHILDREN’S ART CLASSES                                                                                   

Art is such an important part of our sense of self and identity.

 

Creative children’s art classes are fun and develop and deeper knowledge of lots of different art techniques…Lizzy has taught art for over 30 years from KS1 to further education running classes for all ages so the space is fun, relaxed and super supported. We will look at all aspects of making from pencil technique, sketching skills, painting, model making, illustration and much more.

 

We will be running classes for KS1, KS2 and teenagers. If your child wants to make art and create in a supported space then the Room for Art is the place to be.

 

 

ANTI/POST NATAL SESSIONS                                                                                       

The Room for Art is creating a social space where expectant mums and new mums can meet and connect through creative activities in a therapeutic, safe and confidential environment.

 

This is a space to breathe, boost your mood, feel supported and have some fun while making your mark. The classes are for all abilities and we welcome all to explore and experiment with the art materials. From the basics of drawing to developing sketching skills, looking at shape tone and colour, paint techniques, still life, print making, collage, art as therapy, illustration for books and much more.
