Children’s Art Workshops Surrey


PGCE trained teacher Jo Sharpe has been running children’s art classes and workshops  in schools and libraries for several years. She’s really excited to be able to  offer these holiday workshops from Studio 9 Oaks Park. In the summer months you can enjoy a great day family day out visiting the fabulous  lavender fields across the road and explore and eat ice-creams in beautiful Oaks Park.  In Autumn, enjoy a walk admiring the autumn trees and a have an hearty lunch at the cafe .   To keep everyone safe, whilst Corona Virus is still present, the workshops takes place outside Studio 9 in Oaks park  when the weather is warm enough. The workshops sizes are small to allow for social distancing. Please also read the covid guidance below and feel free to ask me any questions.  Should you wish to book a private family workshop for family  and friends, please contact Jo and she will be happy to oblige. Book ahead to secure a place.

Art in the Park

Jo started running children’s Art Workshops Surrey called ‘Art in the Park’ in August 2020. It has been a bit harder to organise this year but JO hopes the holiday workshops will become a highlight of your children’s holidays. Art in the Park workshops run either inside studio 9 or just outside if a sunny day. If your children enjoy them, they might like to join our regular Budding Artists Classes.

The art workshops take place in beautiful Oaks Park, 5 minutes walk from Mayfield’s Lavender fields . Why not plan an inspiring day out?
