Try one class

We offer one-off trial classes in this course, which give you the opportunity to come along and try one class before you decide if you would like to commit to the entire course. You can book a trial class at any point in the term. There is only one trial class allocated per child/ young person per term. It is not possible to attend this course on a drop in basis.

What we do

The Art Studio for SEN is a carefully designed course, catering to students with special educational needs.  It provides them with a means of engaging with one another and developing their creativity skills irrespective of their ability.

This course is suitable for children on the autism spectrum as well as those with global development delay.

Each class will see students working with various tools, textures, media and techniques in the creation of their own artistic works. The Art Studio for SEN course is a wonderfully supportive environment for students to learn in. Parents, carers and SEN-siblings are encouraged to participate with students who require 1-on-1 support.

In addition, we are fortunate to have volunteers from local schools to assist, meaning that it is not obligatory for parents to remain for the duration of the class. The hope with our Art Studio for SEN course is that the students are able to create in a relaxed environment that thrives on providing a creative outlet.

Joining after the term has commenced

You can join this course at any point in the term, provided that there is availability. If you are joining us once the term has already commenced, please get in touch, as the course price will be reduced to reflect the number of classes remaining in the current term. The course prices on this site are for the entire length of each term.
