Sketchy Kids is an after school art club for primary school children aged 6 - 11.  We focus on art projects that allow self expression, empowering our Sketchy Kids to explore their own unique style.  Your child will become an empowered artist growing in confidence with each project, learning to love art without judgement.  


We encourage children to create for self expression and self discovery through colourful classes where the kids will learn how to use different art materials, techniques and processes.  

  • We look to artists, illustrators, inspirational people and the world around us for inspiration.

  • All materials are included, examples and handouts will be given each week.

  • Parents are encouraged to enjoy the Park while your children get creative in the Art School. 

When: Wednesdays at 4.15-5.30pm (during term time)

Where: Metal Art School, Chalkwell Park, Chalkwell Ave, Southend-on-Sea, Westcliff-on-Sea SS0 8NB

Cost: £8 pay as you go or £30 per 4 consecutive classes (ask about Sibling Discount)
