ARTXTRA is an exciting art club inspiring children to explore art materials, techniques and topics. Becoming creatively and technically confident as well as gaining a broad spectrum of transferable life skills including: improving memory, concentration, critical thinking and an overall improvement to health and wellbeing.
ARTXTRA covers topics such as: drawing, painting, printing and sculpture, referencing both historical and Contemporary Artists. Our students work to a high standard bridging the gap between school and college.
ARTXTRA is facilitated by Katrina Atkinson (Dual Professional Artist/Teacher). She has been running ARTXTRA for over five years wishing to offer the opportunity for children to experience a wide and varied Art Education that is diminishing in schools.

A new topic every week, thus keeping the young artists enthusiasm and creativity flowing. Studies show mixed age groups overall have a more positive learning experience. I have found it to be successful when applying it to my own teaching practice. Students become stronger independent learners gaining confidence as well as finding collaboration easier. Therefore my art classes are mixed age & abilities. September 2023 programme will published very soon please contact Katrina if you would like any further details.
