Looking for a bit of artistic, creative fun for your school holidays? Then our Art School may be just the thing for you!

Participants will work with a professional arts educator to experiment with a variety of materials and create a portfolio of paintings, illustrations and 3D artwork. Be inspired by the Laing’s broad collection and explore and develop your artistic skills and techniques.

This February we will focus on our portrait collection. Students will explore the human form and costumes depicted on the paintings using a range of materials to inspire their own fabulous creations and artwork.

*There is also the opportunity for participants to achieve the nationally accredited Bronze Level Arts Award, at an additional cost. More information about the Arts Award can be found on their website: http://www.artsaward.org.uk/site/?id=64
