Raising the next Picasso? Monthly art clubs at The Harley Gallery inspire creativity for ages 6-16

The Harley Gallery’s sell-out Art Club and Art Club Extra sessions are now booking for the 22/23 academic year. The monthly art and craft classes take place in The Harley Gallery’s specialist Education Studio and are led by professional artist Ruth Waller. Art Club is for 6-11 year olds, who spend the sessions having fun and getting creative in a variety of different ways. Children on these sessions develop their understanding of art and artists while learning making skills. Art Club helps children to gain confidence and understanding for art and creativity... and make new friends in the process. For older children and young adults, the Gallery also run Art Club Extra, which is for 11-16 year olds. These sessions develop an understanding of art, and explore different forms of self-expression. Participants gain an understanding of what it is to think like, and be an artist. Art Club Extra is a great extension for those studying GCSE art at school, or just for fun. 

All sessions take place on Saturday’s, and cost £70 for the full 10 session course.

Places can be booked on The Harley Gallery website. Workshops will take place in The Harley Foundation’s specialist Education Studio, which is located within a group of 21 professional artist’s workshops – and all set in beautiful countryside surroundings. Art Club and Art Club Extra sessions are led by Ruth Waller, who is an art tutor and professional artist. Ruth is one half of the award-winning creative partnership Waller Hewett, best known for their large scale ‘bobble’ installations. If you can’t commit to a full course, don’t worry – there’s always something to do with the kids and young people at The Harley Gallery and Foundation.

There are free activities available every day. Head upstairs in The Harley Gallery for creative activities themed to our contemporary exhibitions, or go next door to The Portland museum and pick up a Travel Diary and doodle, sticker and write as your explore.

Don’t miss the Art Trail leading to Creswell Crags, with sculptures by Michelle Reader and Martin Smith along the way.
