General Information

St Martins is a powerful space where children and teens feel they belong.

Many young people come to St Martins because they want to be more confident. Some have energy to burn. Some love drama and want to pursue a professional career. While others just want to have fun and make new friends. At St Martins we create a safe space so every student can explore their needs and passions.

Our workshop artists are professional practising artists. They’re actively engaged in the industry pushing the edges of their own art form. Whether they’re performing, directing or choreographing—they all have a passion for creating work with children.

The St Martins workshop program challenges children to question their assumptions and develop their own world-view.

Our workshop artists see themselves as artists collaborating with other artists—not with children. They work alongside the young people to support them to create work on their own terms.

We focus on our students’ strengths and build on them. We also extend their social, emotional and physical skills without telling them they have to be a certain way.

The content of each workshop comes organically from the needs and capabilities of each group—who they are, how they make sense of the world, and how they want to contribute to it.

We give our children an experience of all performance models. This means they gain a broader understanding of what it means to be an artist, not just an actor.

Parents tell us that since their children have been coming to St Martins, they’ve become more engaged, confident, emotionally literate, and well-rounded young people. And most importantly, they’re having so much fun.

“St Martins is like a laboratory—an experiment back and forth. I gather ideas from the group and then hand them back. That’s when it gets really exciting. The children constantly surprise me with their responses.”

Ahmarnya Price, Workshop Artist
