Arts for All

Arts for All believe that everybody should be able to participate in all arts activities and that is why MAC has made all of its classes completely FREE for young people in Cardiff and the Vale.

This is a new department is focussed on developing arts activities for young people. Talent and previous experience are not necessary as sessions are for young people who are enthusiastic and want to participate in arts activities. Sessions will develop arts based skills and also help young people grow in confidence while developing transferable skills such as working with others and literacy development as well as, and most importantly, having fun and socialising with like-minded people.

All our staff hold full enhanced DBS certificates and have a lot of experience both within the performing arts industry and in teaching.

Class Information:

Drama Club

Drama is fantastic for developing group skills and literacy skills, not to mention how it can help with confidence. On top of this, drama can help with literacy skills and aid focus and concentration in academic life.

Drama is for all people who are interested in the performing arts and not just for people who want to be actors.  Young people do not need to have been on the stage before or be the loudest person in the family – they just need to be keen and want to take part! Simple!

Drama classes will be on Saturday Mornings – 10.30am – 12noon for ages 6 – 11 and 12noon – 1.30pm for ages 12 – 17.

 

Guitar Club

In our Guitar Club at MAC young people learn to play guitar in a fun and safe environment.

Throughout classes, young people will learn both simple and more complex cords and will learn to play songs. The classes are suitable for young people of all abilities.

No prior experience is necessary. MAC own guitars and so members do not have to own one.

Playing music had been linked to helping develop numeracy skills and also helps to develop focus and concentration.

Guitar Club takes place on a Wednesday Evenings – 5.30pm – 6.30pm for ages 6 – 11.

 

Music Club

Music club is tailored to you! Learn to play guitar, write music or get help in your school work! We have something for everybody.

Music Club is on a Wednesday from 6.30pm - 7.30pm. It is suitable for ages 11 - 17.

Art Club

Art Club is suitable for all ages and abilities. It will teach you to make art out of anything and challenge you to develop.

MACs art club takes a little bit of this and a little bit of that. Before you know it, you will be making things you didn't think possible and seein art in the most unlikely of places!

Art Club takes place on a Wednesday Evenings – 5.30pm – 6.30pm for ages 6 – 11 and 6.30pm – 7.30pm for ages 12 – 17.
