Jessie’s Art Shed

Jessie’s Art Shed runs after-school art clubs, art workshops, individual art lessons and art parties from its base in Standlake. I started this in 2015 and now, with the help of an experienced and enthusiastic team, I believe that art has the power to help children develop their self-confidence and self-belief and is a wonderful way of helping them to express their emotions.
