Even a small area of bright red can have huge impact. We’ll look at how red has been used by well known artists including Matisse, Mondrian, Georgia O’Keeffe and Paul Klee, discovering how different reds interact with each other and with other hues. Experimentation will be followed by painting a still life, floral or imaginative/abstract painting where red plays a key role in the composition. Choose to work in watercolour, gouache, or pastel and scroll down for further information.
Oil pastel could be used as a resist with watercolour or ink.
Please bring your own materials and scroll down for more information.

Have you ever wondered what your baby is thinking or feeling? Would it help if they could communicate those thoughts and feelings to you?
Sign & Rhyme teaches parents/carers and their little ones, simple sign language that enables them to communicate before speech takes over. Just like waving and clapping, your baby can learn to tell you when they’re hungry, in pain or just that they’ve seen a dog! This is empowering to them and hugely rewarding for you! In most cases babies who sign learn to talk sooner than their non-signing peers.
Signs are used in class, like actions, to accompany songs and nursery rhymes and with an array of props, puppets, instruments and the use of disco lights, bubbles and parachutes to enhance the sensory experience and make learning more fun.
Free on-site parking
Café (open all day)
