What will a course look like?
Participants will be partaking in a mix of taught lessons and freestyle time. As I am Mad About Art, there will be a focus on contextualising made-works within Fine Art history. While the classes will be practical-based, (let’s face it, that’s the fun part) I will be referring to players in the industry to take inspiration from, be it notable painters, film makers, digital artists, curators, performers, photographers, museums, the list goes on. I want to inspire and encourage ongoing learning and inspiration for everyone.
Where will the classes take place?
I am based in the city centre of Gloucester on Kings Square. Gloucester is at the start of an ambitious journey of bringing Culture to the City - knowing the importance of creativity and culture to the community. I am keen to be a part of that journey. Let’s make Gloucester the Shoreditch of The West; Cheltenham’s cool Uncle! There is a brand new, purpose-built studio space called JOLT on Kings Square. If you’re coming by bus or train: JOLT Studios are 2 minutes away from the new Gloucester Transport Hub on Station Road. There are many car parks situated in the City centre within a 10 minute walk of Jolt. I would recommend Kings Walk Car Park.
How much will the course cost?
Day classes are priced at £35 including all materials.
The week-long courses in the summer holidays are priced at £150 for the 5 day course.
Class sizes are limited - so early booking is highly recommended.
