Get Creative for Children & Young people

Visual Arts including Animation, Crafts, Photographic and Digital Art  for Ages 4 - 17yrs  

Children & Young People's Creative Learning Programme

We hold regular Saturday art classes at the Lillie Art Gallery and smART workshops at the Auld Kirk Museum. 

Our workshops and courses provide family fun, and are a chance to make new friends, build confidence and develop skills and interests. Our first term begins in October; Term 2 in January with a late Spring Term in May. Easter Holidays, Summer Schools & Book & Arts Festival

Throughout the Easter, summer and mid-term holidays, there are lots of creative workshops and events for children and young people aged 4-17 years to choose from. Take part in a taster session or a full day workshop to learn a new skill, make new friends and work with a practising artist.  

Longer projects are included for senior level pupils 13yrs+ looking to build on experience and skills in areas that may be potential routes to Further & Higher Education. These courses offer a fantastic opportunity for small, intensive skills based groups to work with a highly experienced artist.
