Creative activities for 4-18 year olds 2013/14


We are delighted to announce our expanded programme of creative activities for 4 - 18 year olds for 2013-14. As well as our popular Saturday Art Club programme, we now offer evening, holiday and family activities.

At Plymouth College of Art, a four year old student on Outside the Lines enjoys equal status with a mature student on one of our Masters programmes, by virtue of their creative practice, at whatever stage they have reached in their development. As a member of Young Arts Club, we will: –
