My daughter who is 10 has been going to the Saturday Club since its beginning and absolutely loves it. She's enjoying the class enormously and comes back with very elaborate and thought through pieces of artwork that she has been working on for several sessions. The teachers seem very passionate and make it very enjoyable by interesting the children in their subjects, introducing and studying different styles through various well known artists and by regularly taking the children outside for sketching sessions. My daughter also loves the diversity of the different medias they are using, drawing material, painting, modelling, printing etc. I would really recommend the Arts Factory to any child who loves arts, wants to enjoy a creative moment or wants to improve and explore different techniques.
My 10 year old son has been going to this art club on Saturdays. He has a habit of giving things up after a few weeks, but after two terms is still really enjoying it and looks forward to going every week. George and Lynn who run The Arts Factory are amazing. They're passionate, curious, fun and have loads of experience of teaching art. I like the way they use lots of different techniques and make the most of the environment they're working in. Also, I love the fact that the kids get to work on some of their pieces over a number of weeks, so they have time to think about what they're doing and develop their ideas. Most definitely recommend!
My daughter loves going to this art club on a Saturday. Always diverse and interesting. I love the fact that they draw outside and take inspiration from current exhibitions,architecture and (not the usual suspects) artists. At last! an art club for kids that is intelligent, engaging and fun at the same time. Lovely, experienced and bright teachers too. Highly recommended!
