Hello...I qualified as a primary school teacher 8 years ago but have returned to being a self employed artist (something I'd done for many years before).

Anyway, I'd like to combine my love of art and children but don't really know how much to charge.

The club will be for an hour after school or during holiday times with all materials provided. I'd love to hear what you think....

DD goes to a Saturday art class, it lasts for 1.5 hours and costs £5 a session including materials. The minimum age for the class is 7, my dd is 11 and one of the oldest. They do lots of clay, modrock (sp?), outdoor stuff like big scale sand sculpture, willow sculpture - things its harder to do at home / on your own.

For reference, we're in a low wage area, and classes here tend to be cheaper on average than elsewhere.

Wish there was an art club at our school! I would pay up to £5 a session, based in Hampshire.

I know it is in Sussex BUT the question was how much would I pay for an art class.
Seeing that I live in the NW and don't know anything about the cost of living of Sussex I can only go off what if relative to my area.
The OP than has an idea of how much people would pay and adjust according to her region.

£25/term, max. Assuming about 45 minutes with a biscuit+squash thrown in. I pay that for DSs to do 2 hours of Scouts-Cubs every week, but I'd cough up a bit for art because DS2 is so keen to do an art club (they always get over-subbed).

Hi, just come across your post from 18m ago...what happened? Were you successful? I'm in the midlands, 20 years of primary teaching under my belt, art coordinator...thinking of doing the same. Would be so grateful if you could let me know how it went.

Hi, I am from Leicester. I am working as a Science Technician in one of the 6th form college in Nuneaton. I have always been interested in doing art activity with children. I want to start art club with KS2 children but AT HOME. I tried to find legal premises requirements but couldn't get enough and confirmed information. Can anyone help me please in this matter, if you are already running any club at home?
Many thanks.
