Art Factory is a free, studio style art session which take place weekly on Zoom.A relaxed and informal space for adults to gather and meet, no previous experience is required and everyone is welcome.

Each week, as a group, we look and learn about an artist and their work - exploring themes and techniques alongside an insight into the period of time and social context.

We welcome members of the group to suggest artists to look at, past sessions have focused on the artwork of Frida Kahlo, Pablo Picasso, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Lee Mingwei and David Shrigley – to name a few! We also set a creative task each week for those taking part to do in their own time. At some of the up-coming sessions we will be looking at The Scottish Colourists, the Glasgow boys and girls as well as the new Glasgow boys and girls.

We love seeing what people have been creating at home and there is always a chance to share what members have made at the beginning and end of the session.

At the moment, Art Factory takes place online, and the session lasts for up to one hour.

Participants are welcome to join with or without the use of the camera and if you need any help getting online, a member of the Platform team are on hand to help.
