Have you ever noticed...

Have you ever noticed that a child is often happy to draw with abandon at 5 and yet by the time they reach 10 or even an adult, they sometimes no longer feel like they can draw? Can you relate to that yourself?

Why is that? 

Could it be that we are taught there is a 'right' and wrong' way to draw or that we just don't get enough time in school dedicated to the visual arts?

Could it be that you were told that only people with 'talent' can draw?

At Go Sketch Club we want to change that so that everyone can feel happy and confident when they sit down to draw. Yes, that also includes you if you would like to have some fun arty time with your child.



Why is it important to create art?

It develops problem solving and creative thinking skills

It improves your child's fine motor skills (more fun than handwriting practise!)

It develops a child's emotional intelligence by giving them a way to express themselves

It is a mindful and calm activity so great for general well-being

The creative process helps develop the essential life skill of perseverance

and the most important... it's fun! You can even learn alongside your child

Why choose us?

No step by step

We do not teach step by step as this can sometimes make you or your child feel like your art needs to look a certain way. It can also damage confidence if it doesn't 'look right'

Think like an artist

Instead, we teach the art skills and then support your child to develop their own ideas. After all, this is how artists work and means that your child can create knowing there is no right and wrong.

Become fearless

Your child will learn that it is not only ok to not like something you draw but is actually an essential part of the creative process that every artist goes through.

I LOVE your approach and the way your personality shines through. It's given me and my daughter a lot more confidence to try things, and she's gradually overcoming her perfectionist tendencies. Very pleased to have found you. Your course is the first thing I've found that I feel is really helping her in a guided but free way. THANK YOU.

Hi there! 

My name is Emma and I have loved art from a very young age. I qualified as a primary teacher in 2006 and soon discovered that, due to timetable restraints, there was not enough time dedicated to the arts at school. I was often seeing children with low confidence being taken out of a rare art lesson to do more maths and English.

I believe that we should value art as a subject more as being creative makes us feel good, increases our self confidence and helps us think in different ways. 

As an artist and a teacher, it was the logical choice to bring my two passions together to create Go Sketch Club! 


I believe in teaching children that there is no such thing as 'good art' and 'bad art', only art we like and don't like. Everyone likes different art! We celebrate 'mistakes' as 'opportunities' within the creative process. 

Go Sketch Club aims to develop young artists into self confident, imaginative and creative thinking adults of tomorrow.
