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.

Since opening the gates at Court Robert Arts in the Spring of 2017, there has been plenty of development at this Monmouthshire-based Sculpture Exhibitor. We're in the process of producing a pottery studio, as well as having converted farming outbuildings into lovely new studios.

We'll also be encouraging other artists to tutor short-courses with us, so get in touch if you too want to impart some of your wisdom! You can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on 07763 485638.
