What We Do

We offer creative learning sessions for individuals, groups and schools within the East Riding, York, Humber and wider Yorkshire/North/North East Lincolnshire area.  Our sessions provide the opportunity to explore creative processes in-depth and learn new techniques whilst taking inspiration from creative sources to create your own original and visually exciting artwork. Whether you are a beginner looking to start your exploration journey, or a more experienced artist looking to expand your skill-set, we can offer you a package that allows you the opportunity to develop and learn. Our sessions are aimed at learners of all ages from children to adults. We provide sessions for community classes, schools workshops, school CPD packages, corporate events and packages and community art project sessions. Whether your needs are to teach or learn new skills, improve well-being, offer greater creative access or just to enjoy, we can provide a package to suit your needs. Our sessions offer the opportunity to learn and explore creativity in ways that they may not normally be able to access. We strongly believe in empowering learners to sustain creative activities at home or school. 

We aim to engage in multiple community arts projects that will embrace varied creative activities and encourage a wider participation in visual arts. Whether planning, organising or participating in projects, we offer creative and engaging activities that help to connect communities, challenge perceptions, engage those who might not normally engage with the arts and reach those who face barriers to participation. We pride ourselves on our ability to use of extensive teaching experience to deliver realistic and achievable projects that inspire and excite.
