Here at Forgan we run classes and workshops that all of the family can get involved in.
Check out some of our opportunities that you can bring your kids to too!
FORGAN ARTS KIDS HOLIDAY CLUB
Back once again, the ‘Forgan Kids Art Club’ will be running during the Easter holidays, offering an exciting club full of arts and crafts for primary aged children. Jam-packed with creative fun for those looking to be inspired and for little hands to be kept busy!
With our experienced Play leaders and artists, the children will be able to engage in a variety of activities and mini workshops such as pottery, printing, building, painting and more!
With the success of Ceramics during the last clubs, where possible we will have a pottery session each day.
The children will get to experiment with different techniques of stamping shapes, playing with textures, hand building pots and model making. At points there will be a chance to have a shot on the potters wheel to throw small pots to decorate and fire.
This is a unique opportunity for the children to work with Ceramics, and immerse themselves in arts and crafts over the holiday.
Where the weather allows, we may take some activities outdoors. We would also hope to take walks to forage for foliage to use in our crafts, allowing the children to explore new textures and techniques.
Children will need to bring a packed lunch each day, snack and refreshments will be provided.
WE ONLY HAVE A SMALL NUMBER OF PLACES, SO BOOK NOW TO AVOID DISAPPOINTMENT!

SKATE AND REJUVENATE: TWO WORKSHOPS IN FRESH SKATEBOARD ART
In this all day workshop Blair McCafferty, of the Creature Emporium, will be teaching you how to recycle your old and broken skateboards into wonderful works of art. Using your own ideas, you will use spray-paint and paint pens to create a fun piece of art that’s out of this world!
Blair has a degree in Graphic Design and a passion for all things skateboarding. Previously sponsored by Deathbox, Converse, Jart Skateboards and Dephect skate brands, Blair has campaigned for skateparks and facilities since he was a young lad and recently had a hand in the design, fund raising and build of Newport-on-Tay’s skatepark.
Working freelance, he describes himself as a full time doodle monkey who likes to create cute graffiti and fun street art. Broken boards and materials will be provided. Bring a packed lunch!

FAMILY POTTERY CLASSES
CHILDREN & FAMILY CLASSES
With Heather Gilbert. This class is designed for children to come along to with or without their parents! These classes cater for all abilities, from complete beginners to advanced students. Spend time with your child while both being creative in our new family class, or if your child is 9y+, they may want to come without an adult cramping their creative style? It’s up to you in these fun explorative classes!
Along the way there will be an additional minimal firing cost, which is dependent on the volume of your work. Clay can be purchased from the Centre or you can practice with recycling clay.
