Northlight Art Education

More Than Just A Course…  It's A Creative Learning Community On Your Doorstep


Starting in 2009, our education prgramme has grown and grown.  We currently have 200 peole accessing our regular courses each week.  We offer a broad range of courses  - all led by practicing artists - covering painting, drawing, ceramics, mixed media, textiles , stained glass...and much more.


A Northlight course offers a unique gateway to a more creative lifestyle.  There are regular trips to major exhibitions, artist talks and social events. You will socialise with other creative people within a working studio environment, discussing and sharing your ideas.

Our one day and weekend programme, gives the chance for a more intensive creative experience, learning specific skills and approaches. These workshops are great for those who cannot make a regular weekday course and are now attracting people from across the North of England.


The new Northlight Artspace gives us additional quality teaching space and the opportunity to exhibit our students’ work through end of year shows.  This new project has also created a great new relaxation / kitchen, resource and library area for our students to use


Young Northlight is our weekly  programme of workshops for young artists aged  9-15 years.
