Our Friday afternoon classes are designed to engage young people aged 4-12 in exploration, adventure and art making. These sessions will sparks curiosity in the natural world and joy in artistic process. Children work with experienced artist educators in two groups, split by age and ability, to support skills learning and safe exploration.
Dress for messy making in all weathers! Toilets are available at the Ranger's Education Centre.

I am comfortably able to meet my basic needs*. I own my own home or rent higher end property. I have an expendable income (I can take my children out for meals, to the cinema and buy them new items). By choosing to pay at this level, I understand that I am supporting Art Buds to provide subsidised classes to children who would otherwise not be able to attend.*basic needs include food, housing, clothing and transportation
Fair Payment Tier 2 - is this you?
I may stress about money, but I regularly meet my basic needs*, and those of my children. I am employed, or someone in my household is employed or has an alternative income stream. I might have access to savings. I can buy my children new or second-hand items when required without significant financial burden, and have a small amount of expendable income for treats.*basic needs include food, housing, clothing and transportation
Fair Payment Tier 3 - is this you?
I stress about meeting basic needs* for me and my children. I have debt and it sometimes stops me meeting my basic needs*. I am unemployed or underemployed, and I have no savings.
