Get Involved

 

A big hello from the Creative Team…

We’re back with a brand new programme of digital classes and workshops for 2021!

As well as the return of some familiar favourites, we've added a whole host of new and exciting opportunities for you to take part in so you can get creative from the comfort of your own home. From Art Club to Young Writers, Yoga Snacks to the Macrobert Choir, we've put together a programme that covers a wide range of art forms for a variety of ages and experience, with even more being added soon.

There is something for everyone and as well as spending time with our Drama Artist, Daniel Livingston, you’ll get the chance to meet our amazing new Creative Learning Artists, supported by the Scottish Government’s Performing Arts Venue Relief Fund. Find out a bit more about them below.

You can view everything that’s on and book here.

For further information on all of our creative classes, have a look below, phone us on 01786 466609 (between 10am & 2.30pm, Tue - Fri), or email us - creativelearning@macrobertartscentre.org

We can’t wait to see you soon!
