Evening Art Club

An exciting new evening art club for budding young artists aged 13-16, taking place on Tuesday evenings from 6.00-8.30pm.

Make new friends and learn new skills in the subjects you love!  Whether you are a talented artist, or if you have never experimented with art, Winchester School of Art’s evening art club is run by arts professionals who will teach you exciting new things in a vibrant, highly-ranked art school, part of a Russell Group university.
