Click through the gallery of drawings, paintings, craftwork and jewellery created by children and adults in recent classes. Thanks to everyone for allowing us to show their fantastic work.

You will see many instances of copying from the work of other artists. Copying has a long tradition among artists who have wanted to learn from the masters. In the early stages, it frees the student from having to make any creative decisions, so they can concentrate on colour, line and form and they can easily tell whether what they have done is “accurate”. This helps to build confidence, especially when friends and family recognise their achievements. Bit by bit most students go on to find their own sources of creative ideas.
