THE HISTORY OF OUR ART SCHOOL
ARTPAD first started in 2011. It was a bright, creative art studio based in Soughbridge Mill, Kelbrook, Lancashire. As the studio was based in a Northlight Mill it was an inspirational environment in which to be creative, develop skills and meet other like minded people. It was great to see adults and children alike filling the room with a buzz of creative energy and excitement when classes and workshops were held.
In 2016 we found a great space on Colne high street. Although the old studio was bright and spacious it was very cold, especially in winter. This space was a welcoming and relaxing environment in a more accessible location. After a year ARTPAD is now mobile, hosting classes and workshops at various venues and going out to schools, groups and private homes. Some of our courses will shortly be available online.
