The emphasis of the Young People's Drama Centre is on learning new theatre and drama skills, making friends and building confidence. The idea is also that it is lots of fun!
We play games and create performances with costumes and props, and the ethos is placed firmly on being all inclusive and providing a place to nurture each individual young person's talents in a safe and welcoming environment. We are particularly interested in focussing on building children's confidence, social skills and encouraging them to be themselves.
We meet every Friday evening during term-time from 3.30pm at the Barn in Abbots Langley. Running for over 20 years, the Young People's Drama Centre was the only local drama centre used for Harry Potter extras at Leavesden Studios.
I am a young self taught artist based in Hertfordshire and I will happily take commissions to design and create mostly anything!
I work with many mediums;
Watercolours, Acrylics, Colour Pencil and Inks.
I also offer one of a kind plaques, ideal for use inside and outside, for stable doors, and outside the porch!
I regularly hold competitions on my page as I love giving everyone a chance of seeing my artwork.
I really appreciate hearing any feedback, or even just discussing a piece of artwork/design that you have in mind.
Mobile Face Painting service, CRB checked, fun, friendly and perfect for children's parties! Fully equipped with fresh sponges, sterilized brushes and high quality paints and glitters. Available for all events all year round!
