Erika Gofton is the founder and Director of The Art Room. An art class, studio workshop and all round creative hub. It is a place to come to fall in love with the creative process. For guidance and development, conversation and connection, to encourage you to think and see differently, to develop friendships, to build your confidence, to be challenged, to inspire, to make you want to take risks and above all to be supported in your artistic journey.
The Art Room is an alternative resource and art education for adults. We cater for complete beginners, art school graduates, through to practicing artists. Our aim is to offer high quality programs that doesn’t just develop your technical knowledge and understanding, but also challenges you to question and explore your own creative language and ideas.
We teach classes in painting and drawing, facilitate workshops in a range of art forms taught by respected professional artists, offer professional development workshops and mentoring, and run a fabulous growing program of tutored and untutored life drawing sessions every week.
Above all The Art Room is YOUR studio. We are a vibrant and inspiring place for you to come to connect with art and other artists, where you are nurtured, respected and supported in your artistic journey.
