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.

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.

    Tried and tested art lessons

    I have taught face to face art lessons for years in Bristol in the UK including after school courses, holiday art days, tuition and teaching art weeks in schools across the country


    We encourage creativity

    We believe in teaching the art skills and then encouraging our students to come up with their own ideas for projects so that their experience is truly creative 


    We celebrate 'mistakes'

    We believe that to make art you need to take risks and we celebrate the fact that you may not always like what you draw. That is part of the creative process and something that every artist goes through!


    We offer support

    You can send us a message, email or even request a skype session if you feel you need any support. We love hearing from you!

    Why is it important to create art?

    It develops problem solving and creative thinking skills

    It improves a 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 the child develop the essential life skill of perseverance

    and it's fun!

    Creativity is the key

    We believe in the power of creative thought and taking risks so we encourage everyone to develop their own projects using the art skills we teach along the way. No step by step, instead pure creativity through and through!

    Learn At Your Own Pace

    You can use any device at any time and anywhere! Resume exactly where you left off. There are no limits to the number of times you can view a video lesson so you can come back again and again!

    Increase Artistic Confidence

    Both drawing more often and learning to accept that sometimes drawing something you don't like is an essential part of the creative process will help to increase your artistic confidence as well as your skills.
