After School Art Club - The Art Smart Superstars

The Tetley runs an After School Art Club,  ‘Art Smart Superstars', that takes place every Tuesday during school term-time. This enables a number of children from four  local Primary Schools in south Leeds, St Joseph's, New Bewerley, Hunslet Carr and St Lukes Beeston on Hill, to take part in regular free creative activities at The Tetley. Each term the club undertakes a major project inspired by our programme ,with displays of work created by members of the club regularly on show at The Tetley.

The Art Smart Superstars are currently working towards their Arts Award Explore, and their creative projects will eventually lead to an exhibition and new products in the shop.

After School Art Club is supported by Liz and Terry Bramall Foundation.

Please contact Participation Producer, Taneesha Ahmed at taneesha.ahmed@thetetley.org or 0113 320 2321 if you would like more information.
