Welcome to Art Workshops in English. It’s not a catchy name, but it describes what we do. It’s a friendly art studio for kids, teens and adults, “beginners”, “dabblers”, “serious hobby artists”, “real artists” – in fact anyone who wants the time, space, materials and support to help them nurture their creativity.

Picasso said that every child is an artist. Unfortunately most of us become discouraged for one reason or another as we grow up, and we buy into the myth that making art requires talent that is only granted to a few special people. In fact, everyone can make art given half a chance, and everyone benefits from discovering their innate creativity. It’s good for expanding the mind and relaxing the soul. What’s more, you’ll start to see the world as you haven’t really seen it before once you start to mix colours and draw lines, shapes and forms.

Take the plunge! Come and play for a few hours and see how it goes. You don’t have to buy any materials, and no-one will tell you you’re wasting paint or paper. You’re allowed to chat, drink coffee (or whatever you like), copy, trace, ask for help, experiment, throw it all away and start again.
