Creative Balance offers after school workshops to primary schools across Merseyside.
Artsmark AwardCreative Balance workshops can help your school toward gaining an Artsmark award by providing the opportunity to enrich pupils artistic educational experience. We believe that the ability to think creatively is vital for successful development in young people.
Key stages 1 & 2Our courses run for at least five weeks during term time, lasting for an hour each week. Covering Key stages 1 & 2, the children will benefit from the expertise of two professional artists. We deliver a clear and structured theme, building from ideas and experimentation through to complete works of art, allowing the children total freedom of creative expression.
Experiment and have Fun!The completed works of art can be taken home and enjoyed by the whole family. Creating an inspired piece of artwork gives children the opportunity to express themselves and builds their self-esteem. They will be entertained, encouraged to try new things and create happy lasting memories.
We have two main rules in our after school workshops – Be prepared to experiment and have fun!
