Thank you so much for the ArtShed Takeaway, our children (aged 8 and 11) did them this weekend and loved them. They found the pictures challenging (in a good way) and were able to learn a lot and complete the projects using your tutorials. They really enjoyed it and got a real sense of achievement from completing the projects. The materials packs you delivered were brilliant and the children are glad they also have some new art materials for future projects. It was a brilliant activity and they are looking forward to completing future ArtShed Takeaway projects!

My children love going to holiday camps here. They were looking forward to going to an Easter camp so I got them the ArtShed Takeaway project to make up for it a bit. The materials came really quickly and they had a really happy whole day working on the project! The videos must have been clear and easy to understand because I didn't get asked any questions at all and the end pictures they both did were fantastic! Highly recommend.

Great experience all round!!

I ordered the watercolours Takeaway for my daughters to do during lockdown. The supplies were delivered very quickly and were excellent value. The videos on YouTube are brilliant and my daughters have followed them very well. The girls are still drawing up their main piece of artwork on the proper paper. It has been spread over a couple of weekends - trying to do the artwork on the weekends. Would definitely recommend, and am looking forward to future projects. Good value for money.

I’ve now done two of the ArtShed Takeaway paintings and enjoyed every minute. I did one with my 10 year old daughter for a lovely shared experience and the second one I set aside time alone and worked on it over two days. Kathy’s instruction is clear and well pitched. The art work is accessible to all levels of ability and experience and I was pleasantly surprised how my painting turned out. I’ll definitely do another although I’ll need to find another wall to hang it on!

Having previously attended the holiday club, which the children thoroughly enjoyed, we have ArtShed Takeaway a go, as a way of relaxing together but getting a bit of creative direction. It was brilliant, in a word. Had a mother daughter afternoon drawing lions in charcoal. The instructions were clear, and easy to follow (I'm no natural artist), and we ended up with two very different, but very good pictures. Planning to do more of these as an easy, affordable entertainment option in lockdown world. More charcoal animals please ArtShed Takeaway.

I took part in the ArtShed Takeaway projects which I really enjoyed. My nieces attended ArtShed workshops for years, but now with their mum they have been doing family projects online and recommended them to me. Kathy is a great teacher as my painting ability is at fairly beginners level and I was able to learn on a good pace. I did the Watercolour Duck Run Project and am planning to start another one.

A great first experience of Artshed Takeaway. Easy to order, good communication and prompt delivery. Good quality art products and all intact, when received. I’ve watched the tuition which is really good, but have yet to complete the painting. I seem to have been much busier than expected! Thank you very much ArtShed.

My daughter, India 8 yrs old, completed the ducks watercolour painting through ArtShed Takeaway. She spent two afternoons busy following Kathy's tutorial. Kathy has a great pace and very clear with instruction and India could pause the video when needed. The materials supplied by ArtShed were good quality and made following the tutorial run smoothly. India managed to do most of the painting by herself - just needed a little help with the initial horizontal line to get it straight. India says she was so happy that she learnt how to do reflections in the water. I am looking forward to doing the blossoms watercolour. Brilliant! Thank you.

We were thrilled when ArtShed announced 'ArtShed Takeaway' to keep us occupied through lockdown and beyond. The videos are easy to follow, lots of fun and the art produced at home is fantastic...for children and adults alike! The option of buying materials which are delivered so quickly is also very helpful!! Thank you Kathy for thinking 'outside the box' and keeping the ArtShed community engaged in art!! We hope to see you soon!!

Isla absolutely loved her day at ArtShed, she hasn’t stopped talking about it and I’ve promised to frame the lovely painting she came home with.
Caroline, St Albans, 2020
Highly recommend, both of my children (ages 6 and 8) attended a 2 day camp and said it is their favourite by far (comparing to sport, football, dance). They came home on the second day with the most fantastic pieces of art and can't wait to go back! It was held at St Peters School which was a great set up, my son loved the fact they got to paint, draw and then play and for me it was great as they were not completed exhausted and grumpy when they got home.

My daughter loves this club, I asked her if there was anything that could make it better and she said it’s brilliant as it is! She makes lovely artwork, loves the playground breaks, gets to be allocated to a group with others she might know, it’s great.
Gemma, St Albans, 2022
Booking was simple and communication beforehand was great. My daughter had a great time and loved the activity.
Alison, St Albans, 2022
My daughter attended a 2 day summer camp with Artshed and absolutely loved every minute. She was so proud to show us her master pieces and they were utterly amazing. We can see she has learnt some wonderful painting skills that have greatly improved her technique as well as had a blast with a lovely group of children and art teachers. Thank you Artshed, we’ll be back!
Dominique, Harpenden, 2022
Our 6 year old daughter attended a two day summer holiday season and ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT!! Brilliant staff, excellent organisation and must importantly, brilliant fun. Thank you ArtShed!
James, St Albans, 2021
Thank you so much for a super day at ArtShed! Bea really enjoyed her session with you and says that she would love to go back another time. Her watercolour of Little Red Riding Hood is gorgeous - a beautiful reminder of a fun day. Thank you!
Alicia, Harpenden, 2020
Jakey had the best day!! He usually struggles hugely going to camps, didn’t eat breakfast beforehand because he was so nervous, but came out beaming and saying he had the best day. Whatever you’re doing, keep doing it!
Claire, St Albans, 2020
Great activity day. My children love the creative activities. The staff are lovely and really understand children and how to help them and get the best out of them. We’ll be back. Highly recommended.
Louise, St Albans, 2019
My son enjoyed every minute of his time spent at ArtShed. He has produced 2 wonderful paintings (which we will frame) over 2 days. Thank you for the high level of care toward my son's medical condition. We look forward to booking more classes in the future.
Carrie, Nantwich, 2019
Always very pleased with ArtShed holiday clubs. My son loves them. The combination of activity and art is a winner, and the quality and variety of the artwork produced is brilliant. So many different styles and techniques. Would highly recommend.
Natalie, St Albans, 2019
My son loves this club. It is suitable for all artistic abilities! My son never draws or colours at home, but he always makes or paints something that makes him proud at ArtShed. There is plenty of time for play and it is fun and relaxed. He is even happy to stay extended hours tomorrow and hasn’t mentioned missing out on playing Minecraft by doing this! I don’t feel any guilt leaving him here while I go to work as I know he is happy.
Philippa, St Albans, 2019
My daughter had an absolutely brilliant day at ArtShed. She came home so excited about what she had done. I am so impressed with the quality of what was produced and she has gained so much from attending. Thank you ArtShed, she will definitely see you again soon.
Louise, Nantwich, 2019
Our son has loved ArtShed every time he's been and in 5 different locations so far (his favourite of course being the garden). He comes back very relaxed, and proud of what he's produced. We are always amazed at how good the art itself is too. The staff seem really nice and relaxed. Thank you for offering wrap around care - we really need and appreciate it.
Charlotte, St Albans, 2018
Thank you for another fantastic ArtShed holiday camp and two beautiful new masterpieces for the wall. Artshed is without doubt the children’s favourite holiday activity club - they get to spend a day outside, being creative, enjoying the fabulous setting (sandpit, chickens, climbing frame etc) and are so proud of the artwork they produce with you. The children have developed some great techniques over the numerous sessions they’ve attended and love to reproduce and adapt these at home. They’ve already asked if they can do “lots more” days in the summer holidays! Thanks again.
Rebecca, St Albans, 2018
Thank you so much again for providing my two boys a day of fun at the Art Camp in St. Albans. They had a fabulous time and what a beautiful 'Swallows Arriving' (Large Watercolour) paintings they brought home. Wow! We'll definitely come back again and also recommend you to my boys' other friends. Thank you also to the Admin people who were very efficient with my late booking - much appreciated. :)
Patricia, St Albans, 2018
Thoroughly enjoyed my time with ArtShed, clear advice and support from a talented art teacher. Inspiring and fun projects working alongside other budding artists! Plus the cakes are brilliant!
Julia, St Albans, 2019
Great environment for learning to paint with kind, encouraging people. Thank you!
Annabel, St Albans, 2022
Want to say a huge thank you to Kathy. I enjoyed my painting and time I've spent this evening. So relaxing and interesting 👍Will definitely come again!
Liliia, St Albans, 2022
Kathy is an amazing artist and teacher, and I highly recommend her classes for both kids and adults .... Can't wait to do the next one! ;)
Ailsa, St Albans, 2022
I absolutely love this oil/acrylic painting class. Our art teacher Kathy shares her expertise unobtrusively guiding us to the right direction but at the same time giving us freedom to make our own choices. We are also constantly learning different techniques of painting which makes the class challenging but very entertaining at the same time.
Victoria, St Albans, 2021
Lovely friendly group, where I am learning from the gifted Kathy, growing in my painting style and eating homemade cake. What’s not to love?
Gill, St Albans, 2019
Wonderful art class with a first rate teacher who is so friendly, flexible and inspiring as well as being incredibly talented. The class is so warm and friendly, with complete beginners treated exactly the same as old hands; there's room for all talents as everyone takes it at their own pace. I've so enjoyed learning new techniques with a variety of mediums, and we have such fun whilst doing it. I have to say the class is the highlight of my week!
Siobhan, St Albans, 2018
I did a couple of terms at the ArtShed in St-Albans and found Jayne a passionate artist who is willing to share her extensive knowledge with you. She is an inspiring and fantastic teacher who really helps you get creative and brings the best out of you. It is a warm and friendly atmosphere in small groups. I would definitely recommend this class to anyone wanting to try an art class.
