Community Arts at Langtree School, Specialist Arts College

Within the Arts, we aim to: Increase opportunity, widen experience, encourage participation and stimulate enjoyment.

How? By offering a variety of high quality arts and craft-based, friendly courses and hosting these courses in specialist rooms. By subsiding the cost of these courses via our Community Arts Grant and engaging successful practitioners to lead the courses who have the skills to encourage, support and develop ‘the artist’ within the course participants.

Do you have any suggestions for courses that could be run at Langtree? Are you a Tutor and would you like to lead a course here?
