Art Factory: Adult Art Group

18 Jan 2022 → 29 Mar 2022
Tuesdays → 2.30pm - 3.30pm
16 yrs +

Art Factory is a free, studio style art session for those age 16yrs plus to gather and meet. The group meet at Platform and is relaxed and informal - no previous experience is required and everyone is made very 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 studied the Scottish Colourists, the Glasgow boys and girls as well as the new Glasgow boys and girls. 

We also set a creative task each week for those taking part to do in their own time. 


Due to current circumstances, capacity is reduced and you must pre book your space before joining/attending. Please do not attend until you have booking confirmation. 

Social distancing, hand sanitising and the wearing of face masks will be in place as per guidelines. 

To take part please email info@platform-online.co.uk or phone / text Margaret on the following number 0745810532.

Art Factory leader Paul Marsden said: “Art Factory is a relaxed and friendly group for adults to gather and meet. At the moment we are inspired by looking at an artist and their work - exploring themes, techniques and new ways of making art. Everyone is made very welcome. We also set a creative task each week to do at home and love seeing what people have been creating - there is always a chance to share what you have made”.
