Horizons introduces young aspiring artists to new skills and ways of thinking. Throughout the sessions there is an emphasis on exploration, experimentation, fun and play.

Future Spaces:

Over 8 sessions Convenience Gallery (Andy & Ryan), will work with 4 professional artists to work with you. The aims within the project are to explore large scale painting and mural techniques and styles with the end outcome of the sessions being the creation of your own large scale painting and public artwork. Focusing on street art, murals, and experimental painting.

You will have the opportunity to learn from our professional artists and exhibit your work at the end. The artists they will work with are Georgemma Hunt, Jason Hollis, Millie Toyin Olateju & Andy Wolfenden.

The project is being delivered in a partnership with the Open Door Charity.
