THE IMAGINATION STATION, ART CLASSES FOR CHILDREN

MONTHLY CREATIVE CLASSES FOR HOME EDUCATED + PRE-SCHOOL CHILDREN

“Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited, whereas imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution.” Albert Einstein

Welcome to The Imagination Station: a haven for little artists to unleash their creativity in a safe and nurturing space.

Each week, for two hours, pre-school and home educated children of all ages are invited to come together to engage in arts, crafts, making, mess and magic!

They will be encouraged to explore new universes, make new friends, connect, reflect and inspire. All within the majestic beauty of our restored flint barn and the 12th-century priory ruins on its doorstep.

Led by Abbey Stirling – a local artist and home schooling mum who believes that development of the imagination is integral to learning – these freeflow sessions will celebrate the artist in every child in an unhurried, unstructured, free and intimate environment.

Abbey will be joined by guest tutors and art facilitators to provide multi-sensory experiences to enrich children’s development, with a different theme each session.

Together we hope that our budding Picasso’s will leave with a strong sense of self, feeling connected by creativity to their common humanity, so that they blossom into free-thinking adults with vitality.

All of the children will be invited to participate in a summer exhibition, to showcase their creations at West Acre Gallery.

  • Classes will take place monthly on a Wednesday morning, and will commence in February 2021.
  • Dates and times to be confirmed on the West Acre Gallery website in January 2021
  • Children to wear clothes that are OK to get messy, or an apron
  • Parents welcome
  • Please bring a packed lunch if you wish.
