GO SKETCH currently run after school fine art courses in various schools across Bristol. The classes tend to run for approx an hour and 10-15 minutes depending on the school. Parents pay for the course via our booking system which includes all resources and refreshments. All classes have a teacher and at least one assistant to ensure all children get enough help and attention during the course.
We have an artist focus in each term, often linking with a contemporary artist via social media. We then share the children’s work with the artist and any comments made by the artist is shared with the children. This ensures that children are more aware of the artwork being produced today as well as avoiding repetition with artists studied in school.
At the end of the term we invite parents into the classroom to view the children’s work in a mini ‘exhibition’. See below for past topics and the schools we are in.

Comments from Parents and Teachers:
She gained much needed confidence in herself & her work! She also got the chance to socialise with peers & be independent by going to class by herself. So she definitely gained more then what l expected! Thank you so much
All the children in the group have talked animatedly to their parents about the sessions and eagerly look forward to the next one. We are hoping that GO SKETCH will continue the club at school next term
My daughter absolutely loves these workshops and has become increasingly experimental with her art
