A person painting at LU Arts' evening classes

Sign up for LU Arts’ evening classes

Following a priority booking period for mailing list subscribers, the remaining places for LU Arts evening classes are now on general sale.

Unfortunately, there are no spaces left for pottery for the next term and places for the painting and drawing classes are very limited. 

The evening classes will be held in person, on campus from 7pm-9pm each week and run for 10 weeks from their start date. Refunds will be available if the classes are not able to go ahead for any reason.

Creative Writing

Character development, utilising your senses and writing from life experience are all covered in these classes taught by Alison Mott. Although the focus is primarily on fiction writing, the techniques learnt can be applied to poetry, screen and stage writing. Alison herself writes memoir, historical fiction, non-fiction, children’s fiction and educational materials and has many years’ experience leading creative activities in the community

The course is £50 for students and £100 for staff, beginning on Wednesday 26 January.

Painting and drawing

Experienced tutor Jo Sheppard offers a course that explores a variety of styles and techniques including drawing from observation, lino printing and working in a variety of wet and dry media. Two separate classes are run on Tuesdays and Thursdays, beginning on 25 January and 27 January.

The course is £50 for students and £100 for staff.

These courses make fantastic presents, so LU Arts have made it easy for you to buy one as a gift. Please use your email address to make the booking, but enter the contact details of the gift recipient in the booking questionnaire. You can also let LU Arts know when they'll receive their gift, and they won't contact them before then.

Please note that spaces at all the classes are limited and often sell out very quickly.

Book your place via the online store. You can find out more about the classes on the LU Arts website.
