Art courses through Back Door

A NEW autumn programme of courses starts next month at the Northlight Art Studios, Hebden Bridge.

Its education arm Back Door is offering workshops and courses covering a variety of art forms.

“We have experienced tutors, all of whom are practising artists and passionate about sharing their knowledge,” said Back Door co-ordinator Don Myers. “We hope we can offer something for those just starting and those with more experience.”

Established courses “Art for the Terrified” and the “Introduction to Oil Painting” will again be included.

New to the programme is a regular life drawing evening class and an “Introduction to the Art World.”

Ceramics, bookbinding, digital camera use and felting sessions are also available.

The Back Door receives grant aid from Calderdale Adult Learning, Arts Council England and the South Pennines Leader programme.

An enrolment day takes place on September 6, from 11 am to 3 pm and 6 pm to 8 pm.
