New for 2022

Easter & Summer Schools for Kids & Teenagers

 

Bringing Art classes to Gloucestershire during the school holidays for those that want to spend more time on their practise than their school curriculum allows. Students who are MAD ABOUT ART will learn from myself, an experienced industry professional, accessing insights into drawing and sculpting as well as contemporary Fine Art practises in conceptual, performance and installation disciplines. 

 

Who are the courses for?

  • 7-11 year olds

  • 11-15 year olds

 

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.
