We are all creative and the adult education centres offer a setting in which you can set your imagination free. When you have the opportunity to realise your creative potential fully, the effects will be far reaching. It has been shown that art and culture enhance people’s mental and physical well-being. When we learn about art, it allows us to develop a better understanding of the world in an aesthetic sense. Creativity is your capital and you would do well to cultivate and grow it.
Adult education colleges offer a wide variety of opportunities for learning about art, practising art and experiencing art. The more traditionally oriented courses focus on artistic techniques such as water colour, acrylic and oil painting as well as drawing techniques, such as charcoal, pencil and pastels. To get a good idea of what’s on offer at your local centre, please refer to the latest course catalogue. In all, art tuition makes up some 10 per cent of all adult education centre tuition.
