STORYCRAFT PARENT & CHILD CLASSES

 

Storycraft parent and child classes are for children aged around 2 to 5 years old, however older children are welcome to also register for weekend sessions. Children come with a parent or a carer for a fun creative session at the Storycraft Studio (from 4.5 years children can attend the class as a drop-off). We start every class with a story from a fun picture book. Some of our favourite authors at Storycraft are Julia Donaldson, Helen Stephens, Oliver Jeffers and Benji Davies, but we also like discovering new picture books so usually they'll be a mixture of stories you know and probably a few stories you don't.

 

After the storytime there is normally a short demo showing parents and children the suggested project for the class. The art and craft project will normally relate to the theme of the story. Every term we will have a good variety of projects, often including 2D and 3D projects, structured crafts and more freestyle experiments. Some projects are one week, others span a few weeks. Every term we use a variety of artistic materials and introduce children and parents to different techniques, for example watercolor, acrylic and gouache paints, clay cutters and modeling, mixed-media collage and clay or papier mache sculpture, stamping and stencils, pastels and charcoal. At Storycraft we particularly like getting messy and we like mixed-media crafts which allow us to bring lots of colour, texture and sensory experience for little ones into the art room.

We love singing and action rhymes at Storycraft, not to mention all those animal noises in Old MacDonald! So time permitting we try and finish each class with a song or two. 

NEXT TERM - Under the Sea

After the Christmas holidays we will start our new term 'Under the Sea'. This term we will read some lovely books including "Hello Fish" by Lucy Cousins, "I Want My Hat Back" by Jon Klassen and "The Singing Mermaid" by Julia Donaldson. These super stories will lead us into creating some colourful artwork including Papier Mache Bottle Fish with plenty of sparkle, a Mermaid Canvas and a slightly scary Shark Pencil Holder. We will sing some of our favourite action rhymes and song including "Slippery Fish". We hope you can join us for some Storycraft fun!
