Part of HCA, 1A Arts is a community arts provider delivering activities primarily for children and young people, but with ambitions to work with a much broader range of people.  We value a participatory approach to community arts production and seek to include as wide a range of beneficiaries as possible. 

Digital Media Project

Our Digital Media Project offers children and young people opportunities to experiment with new technologies and digital art forms from animation, glitch art and illustration to film-making and sound installations.  We hold a weekly Media Arts Club during term-time, deliver digital media activities in community settings as well as partner with local cultural institutions for an annual Summer Film Project such as Sir John Soane’s Museum, Francis Crick Institute and Foundling Museum to improve young people’s digital arts skills and increase their confidence and aspiration.

You can view young people’s films here and read their Media Arts Club blog and Summer Film Project 2018 blog

Our Pottery sessions run every week during term time with over 200 classes a year. Children and adults have less and less chance to be creative and learn in different ways. A space like our pottery studio - with professional teaching, access to specialist tools and equipment and our own kiln, facilitates people's creativity and learning.

Looking for a unique birthday party idea? Alongside our regular classes, our pottery studio can be hired privately for groups of up to 12 adults or children. Please contact us to find out more.
