Our Classes and Courses

We run art and design classes for children at the 'Number 6 Studio Gallery' in Pateley Bridge, North Yorkshire.

The 'Number 6 Studio Gallery' is maintained by the 'Nidderdale Visual Arts' charity and is regularly used by artists and art groups in the local area. It provides a wonderful light, airy and well resourced 'real' art studio for the children to use.


Classes are for children, aged 3 to 14 years. They take place on Saturdays, during the school holidays and on Tuesdays for home educated children and after school. Please go to our bookings page to see our current classes.


During a typical class, we will gather for a short introduction as we share the theme and relevant artists. Children will then be free to choose which provocation and activity or activities they wish to explore.

There will always be two teacher-led activities, where the children can choose to be introduced to new skills. Alongside this, there will be several 'open-ended' activities for those who prefer to follow their own creative instincts.


Assistance from a teacher will always be available when needed. Class sizes are limited to a small number of children to ensure that this is possible.

All classes and courses must be booked in advance using the booking system on  this website.
