Creative learning offers free class to lucky winner

Book now for arts workshops at Embrace Arts at the RA Centre

Too soon to be thinking about workshops and classes for the autumn? Don’t you believe it.

The crowds who attended a recent open day at Embrace Arts, the arts centre at the University of Leicester, proved that interest in ‘Creative Learning’ has never been stronger and this year for the first time anyone booking for classes before 31 July can enter a prize draw to win the cost of their class back.

Bookings are already selling for daytime and evening sessions exploring music, literature, dance, history of art, sculpture, the visual arts and jewellery making.

So whether you want to capture the human form or the contours of a coastline, create art or learn about the great masters, design your own jewellery or express yourself through Latin American dance, sing for fun or get into jazz, Embrace Arts has the means to help you achieve your dreams.

And if you enrol before 31 July you could achieve those dreams free of charge!

Details of these and many other creative classes and workshops are available from Embrace Arts, RA centre, University of Leicester, tel 0116 252 2455, or visit the website
