Art Class



Whether you’re a seasoned painter or just looking to try something new, this friendly and creative group is the perfect fit! Be inspired by the scenery around you; the green views of Bartlett Park and the drama of Canary Wharf and learn new skills in drawing and painting.

The class is entering its fourth year, and as always, we welcome anyone regardless of the level of experience. If art is a distant memory from school or you have your individual practice, this class allows you to experiment and discover new avenues to your creativity. Come and talk to our tutor (Poplar Union’s Creative Director, Paolo Fiorentini) if you have any questions or wish to plan or customise your tuition. Each student is encouraged to take individual decisions to expand their opportunities and growing artistically more confident.

Some of the skills you will discover are painting techniques (acrylic, watercolour, oil), drawing and sketching (graphite, charcoal, colour pencil), collage, stencilling, as well as learning about a variety of different supports (paper, canvas, textile). The class will dedicate particular attention to recycling materials, affordable and sustainable alternatives.

This class is open to anyone and participants are welcome to attend for as much time as they choose- be it the full two hours, or as a creative lunch-break when working from home.

This event is capped at 12 people per week.
