Classes & Workshops

The centre offers a wide range of art classes for adults, young adults and children.
 
The annual art class programme is divided into four 9 week terms which approximately coincide with the local school terms. Classes are structured so that new students may join at the beginning of any term during the year. However, tutors also ensure that class content varies so that students from previous terms continue to learn and progress.
