Free Nature / Craft Workshops / Surrey Art School @ Pippfest 2016

Surrey Art School will be running FREE Nature / Craft workshops for all the family at Pippfest 2016! Join us on the 11th September in Dorking for a free community festival to raise money to keep Pippbrook House in public hands. 

Creativity cannot exist in isolation and we at SAS believe in the power of community and in working together to create the world we want. This wonderful community event brings together artists, musicians and local businesses in a fun day for our local residents to enjoy.

Our workshops are sponsored by Gilliangladrag and the fabulous Fluff-a-torium in Dorking.

Come and meet the team, sit and make with us this Sunday! 

Dorking Advertiser

Surrey Art School is featured in this week's Dorking Advertiser. 

Although we are delighted by the local promotion we'd just like to stress that Surrey Art School was founded to extend what schools are able to offer in terms of Art Education.  It is restrictions such as the Ebacc that are wholly out of schools' control and that have been pushed by the government, that are having such a negative impact on creative subjects. 

Having taught in schools for the last 8 years, I couldn't have more respect for teachers and schools and the wonderful, relentless and rewarding work they take every day to ensure our young people have a bright creative future!
