Arts Classes for Children and Young People

We currently run a weekly Creative Communication Group for children aged 6-16 years old with autism and social communication difficulties.

We have also started two new art and sport after school group collaborations, one with social housing provider One Housing and the Calthorpe Project, and the other on the Tybalds Estate.

We also run popular weekly after school pottery classes for children and young people. 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.  

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, run inspiring Trips Out, and deliver digital media activities in community settings, as well as partnering with local cultural institutions for an annual Summer Film Project such as Somerset House, 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.
