Art Explore in the Studio | 12:00 – 14:00 | Spring 2022


Teacher: Auriol Herford
Ages: Adult

Dates: Thursday 13th January to 31st March (no class 17th February)
Time: 12pm-2pm
Location: Kite Studios

Auriol, founder and Director of Kite Studios leads this lively and friendly weekly class for adults in our main art studio.

This course is for adult learners at all levels of art practice including complete beginners, artists who have not practised for a while and artists who want to collaborate and work alongside others.

It is a course fuelled by curiosity and a desire to discover new techniques, materials and processes. We use fine art materials and a wide range of tools and equipment in our studio including our etching presses. We draw inspiration from the old masters, contemporary artists, collectives, the natural world and each other.

We welcome complete beginners without any formal art training, as well as those with experience who are looking to develop their practice, or are returning to art after a long break and are looking to experiment.

We offer a friendly, informal and supportive environment. We support artistic freedom, self-expression and confidence building in a non-judgemental creative space.

Each term we draw on a different theme as inspiration. Our theme for Spring Term 2022 will be creative growth. The first session is a lead-in with drawing activities and mind-mapping to explore how this topic could catalyse interest for each person. We will also relate the theme to current exhibitions. In the final session on 31st March we will step back and reflect, evaluate, share and show our work in the context of the studio.

We focus on exploring the artistic process and experimentation. Each project in the class has clear parameters so that everyone is able to leave each week with a sense of both accomplishment and progress.

We plan to be in the studios for the Spring Term. We will have all our COVID precautions in place including limiting class numbers to enable social distancing. If you are more comfortable joining via Zoom, this is also possible – please just let us know when you book (in the comments field please). In the event that stricter COVID restrictions are reintroduced, we can move the whole class onto Zoom so that we can continue the course.

We know that some of you cannot commit to a full term of classes so we are offering flexible booking.  You can therefore book at the last minute and drop in (slightly higher fee of £40) as and when your diary allows.

We look forward to seeing you!
