ABOUT US & OUR ART CLASSES
Our Mission: To support you in living a creative life.
- Are you caught on a continuous treadmill: work, chores, responsibilities, and pressures?
- Do you long for a more relaxed, happy life and to get back in touch with your creativity ?
- Maybe you haven't done any art since leaving school but used to love it.
- Have you a stack of art materials but never find the time to use them?
- Full of imaginative ideas but don't know where, when or how to start exploring them?
- Do you wish you could make art or crafts that sell, bringing in some extra income?
- Would you like to meet people who feel the exact same and are doing something constructive to change.
Our Vision: We will nurture the love of art and creativity in children as they grow ...
All children need at least one adult in their life who will nurture their creativity. Someone who supports them in exploring ideas, making decisions and taking chances. Being creative fosters the belief that anything is possible and develops creative thinking and problem solving skills through exploring the world. Art allows children to express feelings and emotions, enables them to use their intuition and allows them to construct their own interpretations.
We have gained Arts Award centre status to help with our vision to support young people to develop as artists and arts leaders of the future.
... and we will support adults in remembering it!
Childhood experiences can make a lasting impression and the creativity, fun and magic we enjoyed as children leaves many adults looking back and wondering when it all stopped.
If you look closely it is clear we are all still wonderfully creative in our everyday lives. You choose your clothes/jewellery/make up, cook your meals, tend to your garden, make your interiors beautiful and welcoming. You may manage a budget, love telling jokes, write in a diary - the list is endless and you are creative.
ARTPAD is an inspirational environment in which you can explore your creativity & imagination through art, craft & design. We believe customers young and old can have a spirit of adventure & imagination!
