Children's & Teens and Home Educated Families Art Courses


Enrich, Enable, Explore, Engage, Excite!

We now work on an application system so we like to meet your child and complete the application form together before they can start.
This is to ensure we have well balanced, manageable groups and so you get a clear picture of how we work. 

We are an art studio and we are artist educators.

We are happy to work with children who have diverse or additional requirements and ask that you give as much information as you can about your child so we can meet their needs.

Our Tutors
Pauline Stanley BA Fine Art  (Hons) RNMS, NNEB
I have a BA in Fine Art, and I am very experienced art, craft and textile workshop leader working with a wide range of ages and disabilities.
I have been working with children for 30 years and work with schools, museums, Durlston County Park, Artsreach, Pavillion Dance, Bournemouth Arts Festival and Artsreach. 
I teach as a visiting tutor at Arts University Bournemouth. 
I am an Arts and Health Practitioner, passionate about art and creativity and want to pass that passion on.

Christine Banfield B.A.(Hons), PGCE, PCET, QTS
I am an experienced and qualified lecturer, and have been teaching children and adults for the past 17 years. 
I am a specialist in Art & Design and I have worked with mainstream learners, and learners with moderate to severe learning difficulties and/or disabilities. I have also supported disaffected learners to re-enter education, and facilitated both 1:1 and group sessions. 

  • We both have full DBS, PL insurance, and St Johns First Aid.
  • We aim for term times inline with Bournemouth schools but may have to alter these slightly as sometimes we have other commitments.
  • We have a maximum of 8 children per group as we prefer to work with small groups.              
  • This allows us to work in a very conscious way with each child's needs.
  • We ask that you tell us honestly and in full about any disabilities, Aspergers, mental health conditions, behaviour problems, health concerns so we can care for your child and also have well balanced manageable groups
  • We have a space outside the studio where parents can sit, wait and chat. This is good for children who like their parents nearby. 
  • You can also leave them with us if you think this is appropriate and the child agrees and we have discussed it and we have parents mobile numbers
  • Please bring a snack and drink for each child as they have a 10 minute break mid session.

Payment  - terms and conditions
£10 a two hour session (unless stated otherwise) 
6, 7  or 8 week terms. Payable in advance please on the first day of term.
Discount for second child in the family so £7.50 per session
We have offered families the possibility of paying weekly  but we have found that families don't want to pay for missed sessions so we can no longer offer this option.
We require 6 weeks notice if your child’s place is no longer wanted

What we offer
We explore printmaking, drawing, calligraphy, sculpture, scriptwriting, puppet making & performance, felt making, painting, ceramics, stop motion animation, cyanotypes and lensless photography, textiles, bookbinding, and investigate a range of traditional and contemporary artists.

Our approach
We are both passionate about art and creativity and want to pass that passion for creativity on.
Gentle but firm, clear boundaries. 
We have lots of fun but learn at the same time. 
Definitely not a 'classroom' approach.
We don't over simplify what we teach to the children, they are all very bright and hungry to learn and we respond to that but each child works at their own pace and with 8 children we can do that. 

Child led sessions but with the artist tutor providing a well organised structured session around their ideas/choice of medium to explore.

We are not product orientated but orientated towards  exploration of processes and we respond to the children's current interests.

Each child is treated with great care and respect. 

If you are interested in any of these sessions please call
