Art Courses at Nature in Art

Nature in Art runs approximately 35 classes a year in a variety of subjects, catering for all levels from beginners to advanced.

Most courses are run by artists who have work in our collection and/or have been an artist in residence. The courses are held in our purpose built education centre. Class sizes are generally kept between 6-12 people to ensure you receive individual attention from the tutor whilst enjoying a sense of team spirit.

If you would like to talk to someone about art courses, please call 01452 733947 or 731422 or ask when you next visit the museum. But, please look below at our comprehensive course descriptions first as your questions may well be answered there.

Please see links at foot of page for full course details and descriptions.
