We are working towards reopening and really looking forward to seeing you again.

We know how important your creative activities and classes are to you and are currently working hard on plans to restart some face-to-face classes in the Autumn.  Our priority is to ensure we can meet safely, following government guidelines and advice.   More details will be announced as plans progress.

Currently active are:

  • Our Art at Home page in the What’s On section which provides you with lots of art activity ideas you can do at home.  Click here to go straight there.
  • The Art for Memory and Art for Parents ArtsLink Fizz! groups continue to create using the creative packs we previously sent out.
  • Parkinson’s Dance is continuing at home using the specialist videos which are available online or via DVD.
  • Virtual Classrooms continue with James Budden who offers weekly Oils and Portrait and Drawing classes.

Please do keep doing your art practice at home! We would love to see what you create – please take a photo and share it with us on social media – see the links at the bottom of the page.

Stay safe and keep on creating!
