Art Classes - Explore, Experiment and Create

Over the past few weeks, adults attending The Laboratory's evening classes have been exploring the use of modroc on canvas to create a unique 3D piece of work. 
Looking at work by artists such as Niki De Saint Phalle, Klimt, Lowry, Kandinsky and Norval Morrisseau, learners drew their inspiration, added a bit of imagination, a touch of acrylic paint and then set to work.
At The Laboratory we aim to provide learners with the opportunity to experiment, explore and create using a wide and diverse range of materials and techniques. 
Adult classes currently run on a Thursday evening 7:00pm-9:00pm and cost £8 per person. 
Due to demand we will shortly be opening up an additional class on a Tuesday evening 7:00pm-9:00pm, if you would like more information on adult or children's art classes - or would like to book a space please contact Lisa on

 These are some of the finished Mod Roc paintings, these will be displayed at The Laboratory in April
This tree looks fabulous breeching the boundary of the canvas, inspired by the work of Norval Morrisseau.

We love the layering of colours on the "seaweed"form and the mouth watering doughnut
