"Northlight has now become an established course provider in the creative sector.  We like to think we have something for everyone and our fantastic teaching team are passionate about encouraging the creative side in us all!" says Don Myers, the project's coordinator.

He adds, "We've seen our programme increase each year and this year we're aiming for 200 regular weekly students! We're also really pleased and excited about the growth of our Young Northlight sessions where young artists can work with professional artists and really explore their art interest."

Joining a Northlight course will also gain access to an enrichment programme that includes gallery visits, talks and social events. 
The new term starts on Monday 12th September and there are finding out and enrolment days with Don on Saturday 3rd September from 11am - 4pm and Weds 7th Sept 6 - 8.30pm.
