COMMUNITY ART STUDIO
What's it all about?
Art Ninja HQ has a mission to support communities through creativity. Creativity is at the heart of everything we do, it can help you with your well-being, bring people together and provide a safe space to explore problems, celebrate successes and make friends. A community art studio can support these ideals by providing the space for that to happen in a fun and proactive way where everyone is equal and valued.
There is no 'wrong way' in Art Ninja HQ!
What is Art Ninja HQ like?
The space is limited, with a maximum of 6 people in the studio at one time (some woud say cosy!). It is relaxed with tables, chairs, a refreshment station ( if you dont want to use the fabulous Hub cafe!) and all the art materials you could ever need! I am experienced tutor and will be there to support you if you require it. There is a daily project you can join in with or just grab some materials from the shelves and get started.
There is also plans for a quiet corner if you want to sit and knit or sew or just not sit at a table. The choice is yours.
What ages do we allow?
I offer the space from age 10 upwards. I made this decision so I can focus on offering a positive creative experience for younger artists who may be working towards building a portfolio or school work. The much younger artists are currently well catered for in The Hub. This may change however, if there is a need please come and see me.
Accessibility and mobility?
The room is on the ground floor level with easy access into the room. There are also mobility friendly toilets nearby. I am very happy to accomodate anyones needs so please come and see me so I can help make your studio time comfortable and safe for you.
How do I get involved?
Pay as you go
You can just come along and pay on the day, with every fourth visit being free. I can take cash and card payments in the studio or you can book and pay online in the shop. With limited space though you may need to wait or there is the option of booking in with me to ensure your place. It is fairly relaxed so don't worry too much, if you are in the middle of something I won't make you stop!
All materials and refreshments are included. £5 for each 1 hour session.
Become an Art Ninja Partner
This is an annual payment of £20 which supports our work here in the community. As an Art Ninja Partner you will also get special benefits to show our appreciation of your support. You will be invited to attend social events and get priority booking for workshops, events and support groups. You will also have the option of using a safe space to store your ongoing projects (subject to space of course depending upon the size of your project!).
WORKSHOPS, CLASSES AND SUPPORT GROUPS
Specialist workshops and classes will also be running periodically. The equipment and tutoring means there is a seperate cost and booking for these through the shop, or with me in the studio. Art Ninja Partners will get priority booking for these too.
The support groups run every other week but days are flexible depending upon the groups needs.
