Weekend Art Classes at Royal Photographic Society

Our Sunday morning art classes are a great chance to connect with your creativity and enjoy some playful explorations within a friendly and supportive group at the wonderful Royal Photographic Society!

Kate, your host, will encourage you to try out a whole range of different mediums and techniques. She is a practicing designer with over a decade of teaching experience. We are completely beginner friendly and will provide you with all the materials you need. You can pick and choose the classes that work for you - or come along to them all! We are all about mindfulness, enjoyment and relaxation, so don't worry if you haven't picked up a pencil in years - we'd still love to have you!

There is a cafe on the ground floor and you are very welcome to bring refreshments to the class. There is also the opportunity to enjoy the RPS's free exhibitions after the session if you wish.
