Time to get your creativity on as An Lanntair’s popular Adult Classes return, both online and in-person this spring and summer.
Beginning in the last week of April and running for six to eight weeks, there’s something to tempt all in our series of classes this spring, from acting to art journaling, Salsa dancing to creative writing, and much more in between.
Join again with fellow creatives for in-person workshop Dath sa Ghaidhlig (Colour in Gaelic) as Ishbel Murray presents a mixed media course combining the Gaelic language and art practice; and Catriona Hill is set to take all through their thespian paces with her weekly Acting class – open to new starts and those well-versed, the class also offers the chance to explore writing for screen and stage.
“The Artist helps the work by revealing mystic truths,” said Bruce Nauman – and artist Jane Harlington’s workshop series Inner Journeys and Creative Art Journaling aims to provide you with some ‘time-out’ in which art and creativity can facilitate a return resilience; the perfect way to rebalance after the fear and stress of a global pandemic.
And helping you get some more movement in life, Louise Davidson’s Introduction to Argentine Tango is set to deliver a swing to your step as you explore balance, connection, confidence, musicality, and flair with Louise’s introduction into this beautiful dance. Dementia and Parkinson’s friendly, no previous experience or partner necessary, it’s a wonderful alternative to conventional exercise.
Moving online with An Lanntair Adult Classes and artist AJ Stockwell as the question ‘What if we think of the land as a collage?’ in creative workshop Lay of the Land, introducing collage techniques and materials and focusing on a specific site which holds connection for you,
Putting pen to paper gets easier with Emily Utter’s Creative Writing for Beginners online classes, where you can learn the foundations of creative writing through discussion, reading, and in-class writing exercises, working towards finishing a completed short-story over the course, receiving tailored feedback from Emily throughout.
And Video Conversations, with Kate Steenhauer, presents a series of workshops that combine (live) visual art, the spoken word and sound as participants create their own short film, using their phone to record an inspiring conversation and sound between family, friends, or at the bus stop!
An Lanntair’s online workshops series will continue this summer, with four further classes starting via Zoom in July and August – Watercolour: The Fundamentals with Steve Bretel; Comic Making with Malcy Duff; Treasure Brooch with Aubin Stewart, and Bookbinding with Gillian Stewart!
