What’s going on?

Community Green

We are delighted to announce we have been successful in getting funding from the Mayor Of London’s Get Moving programme encouraging fresh approaches to physical, mental and creative activity for older Londoners.
In April we launched Community Green, our gardening & food project in beautiful Burgess Park. Come and join us!
As part of Community Green we will be running a number of Intergenerational Summer Workshops throughout August. Join us at our studios to design, decorate and plant a container for your balcony or garden!

Place to Remember

Place to Remember is Art in the Park’s heritage project funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund exploring the history of four local buildings in Walworth and Camberwell, focusing on the architectural and social history of local buildings.
A big thank you to ASC gallery for hosting our exhibition, to everyone who contributed and to everyone who came along to the gallery to see and listen to our fabulous collection of oral histories and artwork.

Garden planters with Rose Court Care Home

We are working in the garden with residents of Anchor’s Rose Court Care Home and members of Age Concern Lewisham and Southwark’s Yalding Road Healthy Living Centre, thanks to a small grant from United St Saviour’s.

New Pottery Classes – for Children and Adults

Nam is away during July and August – but classes will resume from the 19th of August
New pottery classes for both children and adults are now running every Friday and Saturday at the studio. Come along and enjoy a ceramic class at Art in the Park, ceramic painting, clay making and wheel throwing. Explore and have some fun with clay.

Kiln Firing & Ceramic Services

We are now offering kiln firings and other services to ceramicists without their own kiln of studio. Firings start from £40 – please get in touch with Nam Tran for more details.

Thank you to The Bigger Picture!

The Bigger Picture at EDT Film Club has funded the purchase of a pottery wheel for the use of local people in both Southwark and Lambeth. We run pottery classes for all ages on Thursdays and hold special events at weekends for parents and children. To have a second wheel has now expanded our horizons and allowed us to work with twice the number of people at each session and events. Thank you all at the Bigger Picture EDT Film Club!

Courses and Workshops

We have many new art courses and workshops running throughout the year at Art in the Park. Life drawing, wood carving, mosaics, pewter and more… Get creative and learn some new skills in 2016! Concessions are available, see here for more details.

Art in the Park is a charity devoted to enriching Londoners’ lives and environment through the visual arts. We run art and performance based education and training workshops and are involved in community, studio and public art projects.
