My name is Bev Morrant.
I began my journey by teaching an after school art club for primary school children. I called the class 'Painting and Drawing Art Club' which is a bit of a mouthful! When highlighting the initial letters for a letter to parents quite early on, the word PANDA stood out very clearly. From that moment the name 'Panda' stuck and it has now come to incorporate all aspects of my art business from lessons to workshops, school visits and painting sales under the umbrella of Panda-Art.
PANDA CLUB won FIRST place in a National after school art competition, winning a cheque for £1000 to spend on art materials for the club! This was a fantastic honour and well deserved by the children who painted with me at that time.
I first created the business by teaching art in a weekly 'Panda Club'
from two different primary schools in Leicestershire where the children constantly surprised me with the high level of work they produced each week.
Panda Club then moved to a fabulous venue, Studio G001 in The Atkins Building on Lower Bond Street in Hinckley where I enjoyed running classes for 4 years from my beautifully bright and cheerful studio.
Panda-Art has now moved to Lincoln! For the first three years of Panda-Art's journey in Lincoln I ran classes from a lovely studio in the Bailgate area but now have a purpose built studio in my garden. It is perfect. I run classes for 4 children at a time in an after school class from Monday to Friday.
Classes : Monday. Tuesday. Wednesday. Thursday. Friday.
Times: 5.00pm to 6.30pm.
Payment : £10 per session.
Classes are run in 5 week blocks with payment of £50 made on week 1.
Children can join at any time within the 5 week block if there are spaces.
No refunds given unless I have to cancel a class.
Everything needed for the lesson is provided including aprons.
(During Covid 19 I would appreciate if the children could bring their own aprons. Many thanks.)
Please call 0775 343 7811 to book a place or contact me through the contact page on this site.
To see a growing self confidence in the artistic ability of these young children is a fabulous thing to see.
Panda Art always welcomes new members and encourages children to a higher level of artistic independence under friendly supervision.
