What we do
The Adult Art Explore Projects course offers instruction in a wide range of approaches and skills exploring various tools, techniques and materials. Some of the techniques covered include printmaking (screen printing, lino printing and etching), using the etching press, the laser cutter, the heat press for textiles, and also clay, with access to the kilns. We learn traditional fine art skills including painting and drawing from observation. Painting media include watercolour, acrylics and oils.
The Adult Art Explore Projects course is intended as a space of artistic freedom which encourages creativity, self-expression and confidence in one’s own artistic capabilities. For a full description of the course please visit our Adult Art Explore Projects page.
