What we do
Brush-In is a brand new fortnightly art club for older teenagers/ young adults with additional needs.
Kite Studios are passionate about developing a creatively enriching environment for a diverse range of participants. Our commitment to inclusivity has led to the development of a number of successful SEN classes for children and young people. Wanting to build upon this success, we’ve developed our Brush-In classes in response to what we saw as a gap in the opportunities afforded to older teenagers and young adults with additional needs – especially those who want to pursue visual arts in a meaningful way.
These sessions will explore multiple artistic disciplines, such as painting, printmaking and clay sculpture. Each term we will explore a theme and many diverse responses that it can provoke – providing a tangible structure that empowers our participants to hone their creative instincts and develop collaborative workig skills. These sessions also aim to offer an invaluable social experience, facilitated by providing a short on-site break half way through each session, in order to have a break and share more casual conversation.
These sessions have been developed specifically with SEN/ young adults in mind and we believe that the structure of the programme will provide significant creative enrichment and importantly provide transferrable skills, both creative and personal areas at this transforative time of life.
Brush-In at Kite is not a course, so it can also be attended on a drop-in basis as suits your schedule.
Who teaches the class
Each session is led by Kite Studios art teachers, with the assistance of young volunteer artist participants. The volunteers help to enrich each session by modelling social behaviours/ communication skills, demonstrating good studio practice and providing support at particular potential points of stress, such as in the transitions between activities.
