Lemon Studios Art Classes @ Court robert started last week and - not that we're biased - they're going brilliantly! Christine and her clay-makers have been discovering what they can create, this week making teapots and vases for the home. i think our current favourites are the pear faces, how adorable are they?! remember, christine's creative clay classes start from just £16 a session! It's a relaxed environment where you're all there to enjoy your day and produce some great pieces.
plus, alex had both his painting and drawing classes last week, as well as an oil painting workshop last saturday. suffice to say the students are enjoying learning more and more about drawing and painting, and can't wait to learn more!
If you like the look of what you see, it's not too late to sign up! You're still able to sign up for classes, starting from £16. click here to find out more.
We don't know about you but we're getting a little fed up of these grey days... according to our calculations, this time last year the sun was shining and summer was on the horizon! let's hope for some better weather very soon...
easter weekend was a great success here at court robert - the cakes were particularly popular! we loved chatting with all of our lovely visitors and even making a few sculpture sales too. we hope you had a great bank holiday weekend!

Happy St. Davids Day! Did you know that St. David is in fact the patron Saint of snow? It probably couldn't be more of an appropriate title given our current weather situation... With lows of minus five, lets just say we're happy to have a cosy office at Court Robert Arts.
This week our first Court Robert Art School session plan also went LIVE! This is big news and we're extremely excited about what's to come in the next few months. Christine's creative clay-making classes will begin in April, and we'll be publishing more information about Alex's drawing and painting classes by the end of next week.

From sculpting to finalising our Art School plans, last week was a busy one at Court Robert Arts...
We're still finishing up the course details at the moment, we want them to be just perfect for our prospective students! Although, we can provide you with a small sneak peak into what sort of things we'll be offering... You can expect to learn about the craft of creative clay-making from Christine, as well as the art of oil painting from Alex.
We've also been making some amendments to our teaching studios to provide students with the ideal space to free their creativity. So as you can imagine, it's sure to be a great season of teaching at the new Court Robert Art School!
We're also delivering more and more sculptures to Garden Centres and Reclamation Yards in preparation for the Spring weather. Although we think someone needs to tell the weather system that it's meant to be a bit warmer than -2? Hopefully it'll heat up by the time we re-open our exhibition for Spring/Summer season this Easter... Fingers crossed!
Having had a glorious taste of Spring weather at Court Robert this week, we're getting all the more excited for our opening Easter weekend at the end of March.
Aside from that, we've had a few other lovely things going on here too. Christine has been busy having her sculptures accepted into plenty of Garden Exhibitions this Summer, including Sir Harold Hiller Gardens in Hampshire from May through to October 2018. Plus, Artstone have delivered their Spring/Summer collection to Gallops Architectural Salvage Ltd in Crickhowell. With pieces including the classic Iron Hare and the Sitting Cat, we're hoping the weather stays sunny enough to exhibit the work in all of its glory!
We'll be back with more updates later on in the week on our website and Facebook page, keep an eye out to find out more about the finishing touches we're making to our Art Classes starting April 2018...
This Easter 2018, Court Robert Arts will be reopening their Sculpture Exhibition for the Spring and Summer months (and we're super excited)! Since last Spring, we've been busy doing lots of work to our Courtyard and Gardens, so make sure you pop along and see us!
Final details are yet to be confirmed, but we're sure to have some scrumptious homemade cake as well as some Easter activities. Plus if you're not just coming for the cake... We have lots of new work being exhibited here too that's bound to look lovely in your garden.
Interested in learning more about painting, drawing or sculpting? We'll also have even more information about our teaching programme commencing in April at Court Robert Arts.
Keep an eye out for the event page on Facebook!
