Afternoon sessions for our popular Saturday art club for young people aged 10 years and over, who love painting, drawing and making things.

Our artist-led workshops are the perfect way to build your confidence and expand your art skills. Over each six week course you will have the chance to experiment with techniques and materials and to take a close look at artworks from the gallery's collections. This time we will be experimenting with abstract art, mixed media mask making, silk painting, and wire, bead and metalwork.

The fee for the six week course is £70, including all materials and refreshments.

Cancellations and refunds

All cancellations must be made 14 days prior to an event to receive a refund. Refunds are only available for sums in excess of £10 due to administrative costs involved. For sums under £10, monies can be held on account against payments for future events.
