Introducing Club Sessions



Half day sessions once per month, term time

£20 per sessions

Enjoy being creative in the friendly relaxed studio at Greywalls, Lindale, with a small group of like minded artists.


For those with some previous experience in their chosen media, these art sessions are an ideal way to practice and develop your skills further in the company of other creatives and with the support from Karen, an experienced qualified art tutor


Each session will have a chosen theme to work towards such as a technique, theory or subject and Karen will lead the session with demonstrations and discussions to get you started on your own projects. Work at your own level; create a finished piece, experiment with ideas, all with guidance and support from Karen.
