Art and Design

Regrettably the venue where most of our adult learning courses are delivered, the Thomas Calton Centre, has been unexpectedly closed for urgent works. This means that we have had to delay the start of our autumn term while we seek alternative venues. For urgent enquiries please call 020 7525 2652 or email adult.learning@southwark.gov.uk

Our art programme includes:

Art
  • drawing and painting from models and still life arrangements
  • face painting
  • painting with watercolours and oils
  • therapeutic art

Our art studio is light and airy, with provision for drawing and painting, either standing or sitting. We use many different life models for our life drawing and painting classes.

Our courses cater for all levels of experience and this diversity contributes to a rich learning environment where experienced learners and beginners learn from each other and from the variety of projects undertaken. Classes are taught by practicing artists.

You'll need to provide your own materials for art classes. This may include paper, charcoal, pencils and paint. Please see course information for further details.
