You will also need to fill in an Art for All Enrolment Form.

Our Year

Our year runs from September to the last Thursday in June. We then hold our annual exhibition, when everyone is encouraged to show some of their work.

As well as the regular fortnightly meetings for each group, we also have special workshops and demonstration days, an art holiday and an annual Art for All meal.

You will normally be given a syllabus and equipment suggestions the first session. You will need to provide your own equipment as advised by your group leader, who will recommended what to buy and suggest places to get it. There are also some emergency supplies in the cupboard.
