Art Pad is an arts-based youth club for Young People aged 8-12yrs living in and around Perrott’s Folly.
We focus on visual arts and heritage activities in our sessions and explore art forms from Comic Arts to print-making and photography. All our sessions are run by professional artists.
We also like to get out and about and when not in Lockdown, run trips to places like the Ikon Gallery, Birmingham Wildlife Park and the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery.
Most of all we like to have fun!
Art Pad is funded by Children in Need and free at point of entry to help ensure young people from all backgrounds have the opportunity to take part in arts and heritage activities. Our priority is to support local young people experiencing disadvantage and award places on this basis.
Children in Need Criteria: BBC Children in Need supports rpojects that help children and young people aged 0-18 years impacted by disadvantage including illness; distress; abuse or neglect; any kind of disability; behavioural or psychological difficulties; or living in poverty or situations of deprivation
