Criw Celf

What is Criw Celf?

A series of masterclasses that gives an opportunity for those children who have shown talent and/or a special interest in art to develop their skills and experiences.

Who will lead the sessions?

Professional and experienced artists will be employed to lead the sessions.

What does membership include?

~ Members will be able to attend a programme of one-day master classes in the company of professional artists who specialise in various art genres. A total of 6 days training will be on offer every year; they will be held on Saturdays/Sundays. As Criw Celf members come from across the counties and the fact that the programme of activities strives to give Criw Celf members varied and exciting experiences, some travelling will be required to different venues within the counties.

~ One gallery / studio visit.

~ Exhibitions of the children’s artwork

Is there a charge?

The scheme is highly subsidised by the Local Authorities and the Arts Council for Wales and every child will be required to pay an annual membership fee of £38. Enquiries could be made to the school or the More Able and Talented officer at each local authority to see if there is a possibility of assistance with funding. We also have a bursary to support children who are eligible for free school meals.

It will be the parents responsibility to transport their children to the sessions and to provide packed lunches.
