Starts Tuesday 18 January '22
2pm - 3pm

A great way for tweens and teens to de-stress and to make new friends while exploring their creative side. Crafty, arty, and some creative writing thrown in.

I will guide this class by working alongside and creating my own journal with them! We will share ideas, suggestions, and encouragement. Students will be welcome to “show off” their work if they’re comfortable doing so.

We will have different theme each week to give a specific focus but students are encouraged to add to their journal in-between sessions and to collect and record memories, thoughts, ideas, and inspiration as the mood takes them!


Journals are unique to each individual and there is no wrong way to create them.

Starting Tuesday 18 January (2pm-3pm) and running for 12 consecutive weeks, including half-term.

1pm - 2:30pm

Aimed at mature age 12+

A six week group project leading to the completion of a Bronze Arts Award.  The project will explore:

- the contemporary art of British artist Chris Ofili CBE, who made art using elephant dung

- learning about six historic works of art found in the Louvre (by means of a virtual tour)

- and learning the basic steps to start creating your own pencil drawings

The group will work under the direct supervision and guidance of the Arts Award Advisor in each of the six sessions*(fn 1)

Each session will last between 1.5 to 2 hours (depending on that week’s workload)

A PDF Portfolio template will be provided in advance and the group will spend time each week completing the relevant sections. This group will be expected to produce a  physical portfolio with written or typed content  as well as other physical records like photographs and drawings*(fn 2)

Portfolios will be submitted for moderation late Spring 2022


*fn1: The entire project might be complete within 5 weeks rather than 6 depending on the group dynamics. 

There is NO SESSION during Feb Half Term

*fn 2: Some Arts Award projects can be completed with audio or video evidence, however this is not applicable to this particular group project
