Why art classes in Leeds are perfect for kids in 2024

Art isn’t just about doodles and splashes of colour; it’s a powerful means of expression that fosters growth, development and holistic learning. It nurtures imagination, develops fine motor skills, enhances problem-solving abilities and boosts self-confidence – and more importantly, it’s fun! Arty activities and creative workshops offer a safe haven where children can freely express themselves without judgment or constraints.

Unearthing creative talent with kids' art classes

Our workshops are a one-stop shop for the best art classes for kids! We cater to a variety of interests, from paint party extravaganzas to a quieter learn-to-sketch session — offering an enriching educational experience designed around hands-on learning.

A paint party is perfect for celebrations

Let your child step into a vibrant world of colour at one of our paint parties! These group sessions are happiness-inducing events where children create beautiful masterpieces while having loads of fun. It’s an opportunity for them to give wings to their imaginations while also learning about different painting techniques – whether they fancy painting their favourite furry friend or creating an abstract masterpiece for their bedroom wall, anything goes. Plus, they make great celebrations – so if you’re looking for birthday party ideas, add a painting class to the list!

A drawing class will teach them sketching skills

Perhaps your little Picasso is more inclined towards lines and contours? Our 'learn-to-sketch' workshops guide them through the essential principles of drawing – perspective, shading, composition and more – turning blank canvases into beautiful pencil artworks. 

They can explore the wonder of watercolour painting

Watercolour painting is a wonderful medium to express creativity, and our classes take children on a journey through this magical world of gentle, flowing colours. Our experienced instructors introduce kids to this versatile medium, teaching them how to blend and layer colours and create stunning effects.

Say cheese with a photography workshop

In the digital age, photography has become an accessible art form for all ages – so whether they want to capture moments with their friends or boost their Instagram game, a photography class is the perfect solution. Our workshops equip them with basic camera know-how, lighting techniques, framing rules and more - everything they need to capture the world from their unique perspective!

Explore printmaking for little artists

Printmaking opens a whole new realm of creativity for kids. In these fascinating classes, youngsters learn about different printmaking techniques such as block printing, stencil printing or screen printing while creating their own unique designs. Whether they want to customise their clothes, craft some decor for their bedroom or create wonderful wall art, a printmaking session is the place to be!
