Emmylou's Fine Art Workshops, St Albans

Entertain Me

Emmylou's Fine Art Workshops are specialised, high-quality fine art workshops for ages 5-11. The workshops are two hours long and take place in all the school holidays in St Albans. You'll get to experiment with a variety of materials and mediums while learning about famous artists, using their influences and techniques. It’s a great way to learn about the history of art, try new techniques and gain new skills while having fun!

At Emmylou's art workshops you'll go on a journey of exploration with line, tone, shape, space, colour, perspective and form and learn new techniques. You will also get a good understanding of the work of famous artists and the Great Masters of Art and apply their influences in your own work. 

You'll have the opportunity to use a variety of materials, for example:

  • charcoal
  • chalk and oil pastels
  • oil, acrylic and watercolour paint
  • inks

You will see charcoal and chalk in its raw form, learn about where it comes from and how it's made.

All equipment, materials, aprons, snacks and drinks are provided at the studio - no need to bring anything!

You get to take your item home at the end of the day. Your work would be the ideal gift for a family member or friend or simply for yourself.

The holiday workshops run from 10am to 12 noon, Monday to Friday during all school holidays (February, April, May, Summer, October and December) at St Michael's Church Hall in St Albans and cost £20 per session.
