About


The Wee Art Studio is run by art teacher Caroline Bennett in her studio in Clarkston.

Caroline has over 20 years’ experience in working in all fields of education including mainstream primary, secondary and additional support needs. She holds additional qualifications in both Nurture and Additional Support For Learning, is fully registered with the General Teaching Council for Scotland (GTC)
and has been enhanced disclosure checked.

Caroline also has experience in working as a community artist and an Artist in Residence in The Crichton Hospital, Dumfries and the charity Paintings in Hospitals, London. These posts enabled her to develop her own creative practice and also use her skills as a practitioner to enhance patient’s mental and emotional wellbeing.


AIMS OF THE CLASSES


The Primary Art classes are recommended for children from Primary 3 to Primary 7

The aims of the classes are to nurture children’s natural creative abilities as well as develop new skills and experiences. Classes will reflect the benchmarks and learning outcomes set in the Curriculum for Excellence but a greater focus is placed upon having the opportunity to experiment with materials and techniques many mainstream primary schools do not have the facilities or specialisms to provide.

Having previously worked as a primary art specialist for 10 years, Caroline realised the children who received regular art input from a specialist art teacher developed more refined fine motor skills, had enhanced creativity and problem solving skills and were more able to build successful social relationships. Art could be used as a platform to enhancing a child’s emotional wellbeing. Her work in secondary schools reinforced this belief as those children whom had received this art input were often more advance in their abilities.

Children will learn in small groups so they receive all the attention, support and encouragement they need in the wee art studio’s cosy environment.
