Art Classes

With ongoing requests to deliver art classes as education for adults and artists interested in becoming tutors WestREAP began a weekly Art group in late 2015.

The concept was to create a learning space that encouraged people to engage with Art AND the learning environment.

Tutor Kate Buckley had a background in Adult Community Education in her homeland of Ireland.  There, she used Art as a creative medium to bring adults who have not had good educational experiences back into lifelong learning without the stress of a ‘classroom’ or a test or an academic outcome.   WestREAP’s goal was to find a way of encouraging learners to come through the door, not knowing what they really wanted to achieve but with an interest in exploring Art as a way of finding out.
