Think-it Art Workshops

I am running art workshops for kids aged 7 to 15 on the 19th Dec. Our focus is on enriching well-being, enhancing creativity and having fun creating art while we explore who we are as young artists. We also support learners with a learning difference (dyslexia, ADHD, slow processing, anxiety) See advert below.
