Exploring Foundations of Art

Book Now

Join our friendly, hands on group workshops to experiment with ‘back to basics’ creative approaches inspired by the Bauhaus art school including playing with lines, tone, colour and 3D forms. Sessions begin informally with a chat over refreshments and all include a gallery visit and creative activity in our Studio supported by our associate artist. These workshops are a great way to explore the current exhibition, socialise with new people and develop creative skills, whether you're new to the gallery or a regular visitor.

Sessions are tailored for people aged 55+ though all adults welcome. No previous knowledge/experience necessary. Participants can attend one or more sessions in the series and can take their art work home.
