Something for everyone

Art events in our art space

In our first year, we have not only ran a diverse range of courses and workshops, but also held a number of successful events. For example, we took part in the nationwide event 'The Big Draw', which brought the entire community together. This was followed by the Yardley Hastings Lantern Parade with over 300 children taking part. More recently we held a popular talk on Singer Sargeant by the recognised authority, Elaine Kilmurray and a portraiture demonstration and enlivening talk by celebrated local artist, Elke Pollard. We also held a story telling evening with The Feast Of Fools, which was extremely popular and has been requested to return.

Look out for more exciting events coming soon at Yardley Arts.

Many activities can be fitted into the space for both practical work, lectures and displays.
