The Community Sketchbook Project with Korp
We host a free weekly social drawing event with the urban artist Korp at the Cosy Club in Stamford. It’s a weekly drop-in on Wednesdays from 10am -12pm where you can pull up a chair and have a chat. Want some tips and pointers? Grab a pen and have a go. Over 18s only.
Create with us at a free intergenerational creative space where everyone is welcome. On the second Sunday of the month, we host artist-led workshops and other drop-in activities at the URC Hall, 29 Broad St, Stamford PE9 2QH. From craft to urban art, check our Facebook page for announcements of our guest artists @ArtPopUpUK.
Holiday workshops for children
We are currently hosting children’s workshops in conjunction with Stamford Arts Centre, watch out for Christmas dates to be announced shortly. These paid workshops are part of our ‘Pay it Forward’ initiative to fund our outreach work. Children’s classes aim to inspire, stimulate curiosity and exploration so that students are able to discover and unpack their creativity. Read more about our philosophy on the importance of creative thinking in this interview with our founder, Sam.
