New Courses Available at Greenfield Arts

posted 10 Oct 2017, 12:55 by
As we approach the October Half Term, we look forward to the start of a whole host of new courses, running on a weekly basis.

We welcome the return of weekly ‘Core Arts’ group led by artist Alison Curry, which is now hosted fortnightly on a Thursday evening and is intended to give participants of all abilities a chance to dispel misconceptions and experience a variety of core creative skills, including ceramics and drawing. The aim is to enable bespoke weekly development or progression onto Specialist Arts courses.

The latest addition to our Thursday Masterclass offer is ‘Decorative Plaster Casting’ held on 26th October 12pm to 4pm, where you will be able to make decorative flower fossil wall hangings, with artist Fiona Gray, who currently has her work on display in The Craft Programme.

We also look forward to the introduction of our advanced courses in Painting and Photography starting after Half Term. These courses are designed to offer participants a place to work on more detailed pieces of work with the guidance of a professional artist. They will also give participants the time and space to develop their own creativity and maybe even aim towards entry into The Greenfield Gallery Annual Open Art Exhibition in March 2018.

The October Holidays will launch our season of creative writing and illustration events with a fabulous activity day on Saturday 28th October 10am – 2pm, including activities for both adults and young people to learn and explore together.

Activities include the ever popular ‘Family Cooking’, work with Jan Hodgson to develop recipes to keep the whole family happy and healthy, then produce your own meals as a family to take home and enjoy. We will also be hosting story making activities including book making with Dawn Belshaw and creative writing with Alison Curry. We are working in connection with The Big Draw 2017, which is focussing on #LivingLines2017. We want to see how imaginative you can be in making your pencil marks move and your work could even go towards the Big Draw Awards 2017. We will have plenty more opportunities on offer to keep you entertained throughout the day. Details of all activities can be found on our website where you can also book your place. Activities are suitable for any age, children under 8 must be accompanied by an adult.
