Since 1996 NSVA has been a specialist centre for teaching art to children. We aim to encourage imagination and creative expression, develop self confidence and cultivate a love of art. Children are taught to observe and be aware of the world around them and develop their own style in a positive, nurturing environment.

Lessons can be theme-based or media-based with clear instructions and specific skills taught. By exploring a variety of mediums and simplifying the language of art we believe children of all ages can be taught the techniques of artmaking.

Process is considered more important than final product with each artwork involving a learning experience not the production of a masterpiece.

We offer art classes with a variety of fun, exciting courses for children 5–12yrs. Classes are skills based with a max of 10 students to ensure individual attention. Each term students study works by various artists and art movements .
