Help your child discover the joys of drawing and painting
Have you ever noticed…
Have you ever noticed that a child is often happy to draw with abandon at 5 and yet by the time they reach 10 or even an adult, they sometimes no longer feel like they can draw? Can you relate to that yourself?
Why is that?
Could it be that we are taught there is a ‘right’ and wrong’ way to draw or that we just don’t get enough time in school dedicated to the visual arts?
Could it be that you were told that only people with ‘talent’ can draw?
At Go Sketch Club we want to change that so that everyone can feel happy and confident when they sit down to draw. Yes, that also includes you if you would like to have some fun arty time with your child.
There are no upcoming events.
My name is Emma and I have loved art from a very young age. I qualified as a primary teacher in 2006 and soon discovered that, due to timetable restraints, there was not enough time dedicated to the arts at school. I was often seeing children with low confidence being taken out of a rare art lesson to do more maths and English.
I believe that we should value art as a subject more as being creative makes us feel good, increases our self confidence and helps us think in different ways.
As an artist and a teacher, it was the logical choice to bring my two passions together to create Go Sketch Club!
I believe in teaching children that there is no such thing as ‘good art’ and ‘bad art’, only art we like and don’t like. Everyone likes different art! We celebrate ‘mistakes’ as ‘opportunities’ within the creative process.
Go Sketch Club aims to develop young artists into self confident, imaginative and creative thinking adults of tomorrow.
Let’s get sketching!

Emma did a great job hosting my son’s 6th birthday party during tier 3 restrictions. She was able to tailor the session to what Hugo wanted to learn to draw, and she facilitated the session enthusiastically and encouragingly. She sent me all the invites my guests needed in advance, and followed up with some fun screenshots and a video of Hugo’s friends singing him Happy Birthday. It was a great way to connect with his friends over the school holidays and as a parent it was the easiest party I’ve ever hosted! 😄 I’d highly recommend Emma!
We have celebrated our daughter’s birthday in a brilliant alternative way. Emma is SUPER. She has been amazing and my daughter’s friends (Y1) have loved drawing monsters and face cartoons with Emma. They have all asked their parents to have the same birthday celebration. Brava Emma, ❤️
We had a clay modelling party for my daughter’s 11th birthday. Emma was fantastic, it was so well organised and all the children were engaged for the full 90 minutes. I’ve never known such a quiet, chilled party! All materials were provided and they each took home everything they’d made (at least 2, but some managed 4 clay models). Highly recommended. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

As a young child many of us would have easily picked up a crayon and started drawing with a sense of freedom and exploration. I remember vividly that feeling of excitement when I opened my sketchbook on a long train

Hi arty peeps!
We have been offering art birthday parties for kids and teens for many years now and we love it! In this current climate we were unsure how we could possibly move our art birthday parties for kids online.
Hi fellow artists and homeschooling parents!
Many parents are having to homeschool their children at the moment which means trying to cover all subjects while often trying to work from home themselves. For many this is simply not possible. Many will
