Our centre is a friendly fun place to visit and gives our adults a place to meet and enjoy art and for our children to discover the world of art and the joy of creating.

Art is so important to our well being, art can bring people together and aside from the pleasure of creating something you never thought possible, the social element of a class can bring you new friends, a sense of wellbeing and an enrichment to your life.

Art and creativity are so beneficial to your mental health and wellbeing, as highlighted in this article
