Art Club

Creative art sessions for young people in Doncaster

A child with long, braided brown hair sits at a grey table and draws with a chunky felt tip pen onto cardboard during an art session at The Point in Doncaster.

Art Club is an inclusive and welcoming group for young people aged 5 – 11 years. These sessions are designed for families to take part in fun art activities together, supported by professional artists. Whether you are a complete beginner or an expert artist, Art Club is for you! Siblings are welcome too and we welcome anyone who feels they need a bit of extra support.

We are passionate in our belief that all children and young people should experience the same opportunities in life and our creative opportunities are designed to provide essential life skills so that young people can reach their full potential. Our artists are expert in designing bespoke activity that responds to ability level and need, ensuring that all participants are included and responded to within a session, whether they have a learning disability, limited or no movement, Autism or profound and complex physical and medical needs.

Weekly Art Club sessions run at The Point during term time on Thursday evenings, 4.30pm – 6pm.

These visual arts workshops will allow you to explore your creativity through colour, shape and texture. Come on an art adventure with us!  All materials will be provided and the artist will always ask how to adapt the activity to best suit you or your child. Everyone is welcome to try things out at their own pace and will be supported in giving things a go.

ZINE THING! Create your own DIY zine with artist Ed Syder. Get involved in the guerilla publishing revolution by making your own mini magazine about something that matters to you! Self publish your own art, poems, thoughts, photos and print out copies to distribute to your friends.

These sessions will run on the following dates;

Thursday 18th April

It's such a relaxed and inclusive space where we feel comfortable and welcomed. All of the staff are incredibly patient - which is so important for Disabled young people - and really understand the needs of children with disabilities and those experiencing mental ill health. There aren't many places in the area where access is this good!

My child has additional needs, is Art Club for us?

Yes! Art Club is open to all young people, of all abilities. All of the workshop spaces that we use are accessible and we have a Changing Places Toilet, with a hoist and changing table, which you are welcome to use. We also have quiet spaces around the building, in case your young person needs a few quiet minutes during a session.

Our artists and staff are welcoming and experienced in working with people of all abilities. Our Art Club sessions are relaxed and there is no pressure for your young person to stay in the room throughout the session.

If you would like to speak to us about your young person’s access needs, or to visit The Point ahead of your first session, please contact Sophie on sophie@wearedarts.org.uk
