We are hugely appreciative of the help given by The Arts Council and their response to arts organisations during the Covid-19 crisis. We plan to use the fund to strengthen our business model and operational practices, build resilience and develop more of an online presence. At a time when the arts are being valued as a healthy distraction, we are determined to grow and develop so we can engage with many more individuals and communities.
*Our on the ground activities are currently on hold and we are working towards offering a range of online resources. Read our Covid-19 Statement for when face-to face activities resume here.*
Outdoor Studios provides artist-led workshops for creative experiential learning that explores environments, landscape, and place.
These unique learning opportunities are now available through the collective expertise of the artists of Outdoor Studios. We have extensive experience of delivering art workshops in and around Kent, connecting groups to natural and urban environments across a range of arts disciplines. We are printmakers, painters, writers, textile artists, photographers, film-makers, sculptors, craftspeople, ceramicists, and sound artists. Find out more about Our Artists here.
Outdoor Studios provide Full, Half Day and Bespoke workshops and programmes, and accept Commissions.
Get in touch to talk to us about artist-led workshops in and around Kent, either at your school or premises, or in King’s Wood, near Ashford. We can also travel further afield! We look forward to hearing from you.
