Your kid appreciates the complexities of modern art. Twombly, Emin, Pollock: he emulates them every time he picks up a brush.
Hone such talents at Art Animals. Run by professional artist Jane Martin, the service teaches budding scribblers (ages 6-11) in a range of mediums, including inks, crayons and watercolours. Tuition in collage, tile decorating and tapestry is also on offer.
Sessions are available by appointment and continue through the summer. Book your little one in and let the brushstrokes begin.
You’ll soon be presented with a masterpiece.
Consider it priceless.
