PARSLEY PIE ~ MATERIALS & ACTIVITIES!
Parsley Pie Art Club offers children a huge range of activities & projects to choose from plus a massive variety of materials they can explore & experiment with!
Classes are maximum of only 12 children, which means each child gets plenty of individual help & the teacher can demonstrate many different techniques!
Each child is encouraged to use their imagination & initiative and can choose what THEY would like to do in each session!
Parsley Pie Art Club teachers provide inspiration, structure & help with out taking over!
If children want to be left alone to “just get on with it” by themselves, they get that space, but they know the teacher is there if they change their mind or get stuck!!
