Kidz Painting Academy
runs weekend and school holiday courses
19 February 2007
Pottery painting is
enjoyed by all ages. Just by learning a few simple techniques it is
possible to create professional-looking items to take home.
The Kidz Painting
Academy runs its first “Have-a-Go” sessions during half-term week on 21
and 23 February 2007. From 4 March onwards, the Kidz Painting Academy
will be a regular feature of the calendar with workshops running on
Sunday mornings and afternoons as well as during the school holidays.
This will be based around a series of modules. Children can try as many
modules as they wish to learn a series of different pottery painting
The sessions are
available for Little Painters (aged up to 10) and Young Artists (over
10). Each session lasts for two hours and will include instruction from
The Clay Studio’s trained staff, a pottery item to paint and a
certificate to take home on the day. The glazed and fired pieces will be
ready for collection 3-4 days later.
Advance booking is
required for these courses as they are expected to be very popular.
Children can be booked for any number of modules. Dates and times of the
courses are available on The Clay Studio’s Web site and at The Clay
Studio in Christchurch.
Parents are not
required to remain with the children although this may be advisable with
the youngest of the Little Painters. For those who choose to wait, The
Clay Studio has an extensive café, serving excellent coffee as well as
snacks, sandwiches and specialities from Dorset and the New Forest.
The Clay Studio is a
contemporary pottery painting studio, offering visitors the opportunity
to paint their own pottery and learn different painting and decorative
effects through the Painting Academy and by having trained staff always
on-hand. Alongside the painting is The Clay Studio Café which offers
snacks and beverages, sourced, wherever possible, from local Dorset and
