ArtShed in a nutshell
ArtShed is a small but growing business founded in 2010 by artist Kathy Evershed. Finding that her log cabin studio in a leafy corner of her garden had far too much charm and personality to keep all to herself Kathy opened the doors to her first art class in the Summer of 2010. ArtShed now runs classes in local primary schools, parties, seasonal workshops, popular holiday camps and classes for adults.

Who is ArtShed for?
ArtShed activities are currently available for children aged 6–13yrs and there are classes now for adults too!
What are ArtShed classes like?
Art classes in the ArtShed have a maximum of 12 children and benefit from a unique garden setting with plenty of room to throw paint around! Parents book termly and attend an exhibition of the children’s work at the end of each term. Each Term children will complete one main painting on canvas and one three dimensional project alongside other projects. Art Techniques and theory are introduced along the way as tools to pick up if they wish.
Art classes in Schools are bigger with up to 25 children. Each child has a sketchbook and happily spends the beginning of the class doodling. The terms are themed and projects utilise a wide variety of media with emphasis placed on fun and experimentation as a form of relaxation after a long day at school!
Do we need to bring any art equipment?
