Teenage Art Club

For ages 13+

A new series of monthly classes for young artists to explore and nurture their creativity. Looking at different artworks in the collection each month, we will gain inspiration through discussion shared ideas and techniques, then create our own individual work. With Art Club teacher Karen O’Connor, this is an ideal follow up for kids who have completed our Art Club program.

Open to all teenagers aged 13 +

Futher workshop themes will be added during the year.
