1. FINDING THE RIGHT WORKSHOP FOR YOU OR YOUR CHILD
What are your interests?
What skills to do you want to learn and try?
What date and time suits you?
The Workshop Details page on the paperscissorsrock.net website gives all the up to date information on current workshops.
There's also an article here about the Paper Art (5-8 yrs) workshop in particular.
What's the workshop leader like?
The workshops are run by me, Sam Hickman, an artist who primarily works with cut paper. I'm passionate about sharing my creative skills. You can read a bit more about me and the Artful Art Attitude here.
For parental peace of mind - I have a full disclosure DBS check and public liability and indemnity insurance too.
2. SHARING IS CARING
Do you want to bring someone with you?
Does your child have a friend who would love the workshop too?
Sometimes it's nice to experience something that's just yours and sometimes it's nice to experience it with a friend - as a social thing or to give you or you child a bit more confidence.
I'd also really love to help as many people as possible discover their creativity and to see these workshops become successful and that's where YOU come in. Sharing it far and wide would be pretty amazing. Even if it's not something you fancy, you might know someone who would love it.
3. FILL OUT THE ONLINE FORM
Click Register Now on the workshop of your choice and you can register for a place. You'll then get a confirmation email with how you can pay to secure your spot.
4. RECEIVE ALL THE INFO
About a week before your workshop, you'll get an email reminding you of what, when and where, plus any prep you need to do (there isn't normally any but some workshops might require you to bring along a favourite picture or photograph to work with). There'll also be a consent form for parents to fill out and bring along for their child.
5. WORKSHOP DAY!
Come along to your workshop and have a brilliant, informative and inspiring time.
Parents - you can of course stay on site for little ones if necessary. I'm sure there'll be tea/coffee if you do. If you have a child that would benefit from your staying with them then that's fine. Plus there's also a little meeting room so you can be on site but not right with them. Whatever suits really. I would say mostly it's better if you're happy to leave them so they can get on with no distractions. I know from experience that if I'm in the room while my own children are doing activities they want to interact with me and they don't concentrate as well.
I really hope you find something for you or your child in the Artful Art Workshops.
