“I’ve come a long way since. It’s enabled me to include more of the art/craft I used to do and hope to carry on with. A brilliant course!”

Our 12 week visual arts courses include: art materials, a creative excursion, links to further learning and community involvement, optional accreditation and exhibition opportunities, follow up studio placement and volunteering opportunities.

If you would like more information on any of the courses please email Open Arts at

Some of our courses offer free places. For others you may need to be eligible for a recovery budget, personal health budget or carers budget. We can talk about what you would like to do when you contact us.
