We have had a wonderful few months and have been so glad to have met so many wonderful local people. Without you, we wouldn’t be here and we have lived having you come along and become a part of our art family.

Since we opened in July, we have been humbled by how many wonderful children and adults have come through our doors. Watching you all be so creative and seeing the talent that exists here in Maidstone has been an inspiring thing to see.

We have watched our younger students, win art scholarships to wonderful local schools, we have seen our older members of the community, connect with a whole new group of friends and it has been my honour and my joy to have you all there.

It was such an honour to have the Lady Mayor of Maidstone attend the centre and show her support for what we are doing here, she took time to talk to everyone and was so impressed by the work being created here.

Our Wonderful quiz night on the 24th November was held at The Boughton Village Hall. It was such a fun evening and we raised £195.00 for heating ! We are so grateful to everyone who attended and a huge thank you to our generous raffle donations. Leeds Castle Falconry Team for a bird of prey experience for 2, Dreamland Margate for VIP ticket to see Paul Weller, Maidstone United Football Club for vip tickets, and so many other wonderful prizes which were donated.
