Tricycle Young Artists – get involved!

Wednesday, February 8th, 2012 by Tricycle

Each week the Tricycle’s Artist-in-Residence, Natalie Ryde, meets with young people aged between 14 – 18 who are hoping to develop a personal art portfolio. Natalie introduces the Young Artists to techniques which develop technical skills in drawing, painting and printmaking, as well as enhancing critical thinking. 

If you’re aged 14 – 18 and want to get involved, contact Natalie at Young Artists meet on Tuesdays 4-6pm (term time only). Places are FREE but booking is essential.

And from 15th – 20th of May, we’ll be having our annual exhibition of artwork by our Junior and Senior Young Artists, so come along! As a taster, here’s an image of the Tricycle by Amir, aged 18:
