We are very happy to announce The Art Room is now carrying colouring page kits! There are 6 designs to choose from - each one drawn, designed and hand printed on a letterpress machine by The Art Room's own Holly Wheatcroft. (Check out our instagram for a quick video of the printing process at Graven Feather). The paper is thick, sturdy and absorbent. This means you can erase light marks of a colouring pencil, or use watercolour to create your masterpiece. Each kit comes with vintage-inspired, custom-designed wood hangers that slide onto the top and bottom of your page so you can immediately admire your work up on the wall once complete. Kits have been packaged with or without colouring media (selection includes markers, colouring pencils or watercolour). Makes a fabulous gift for yourself or a special someone!
Many thanks to Anna at Oxford Learning for having me over yesterday. We had a full table of enthusiastic and very successful young printmakers. Just look at these wonderful self portraits! A great time was had by all and I look forward to seeing them again on Friday for the Abstract Painting Workshop.
Please take a look under Youth Classes for a whole new series of workshops offered for the month of August. Assemblage, Collage, Explorations in Art through Nature, Abstraction, and Dioramas are just some of the exciting projects we will make together.
First Day Open! What a wonderful time. A big thank you to everyone who came out yesterday and celebrated the opening of The Art Room. Photos by Peter Stevens. Thanks Peter! I love them!

Can't wait to fill this table with eager artists busy creating and making. Lots of workshops and classes are now posted on the website - with more to come. Don't see one you like? Please let us know what you would be interested in and we'll try and make it happen!
