Accessible and inclusive art classes will soon be available in Calderdale thanks to a partnership between the Workers’ Educational Association and the Artworks creative studios.

Located in the Artworks creative studios, a repurposed part of the old mill on Shaw Lane, the partnership comes to life with two courses ‘Drawing for Wellbeing’ and ‘Painting for Wellbeing’, beginning on September 25, for 23 sessions.

The courses are open to all and free places are available for eligible students.

Adam Roe, Area Education Coordinator for the WEA, said: “Expressing ourselves creatively is something many of us dream about but all too often our experience of art classes in school left us thinking we couldn’t.

This simply isn’t the case we’ve all got the ability to create something amazing and these courses will show you how.”

Taught by Peter Stanyer and Lauren Iredale, both established artists in their own right, the courses willteach students the foundation skills and techniques from the beginning.

Peter Stanyer, added “Art is incredibly therapeutic, losing yourself in a creative process can make a big difference to how you feel.

“We see this every day and would encourage anyone to come and try it for themselves.”
