Arts and Creative Industries


At ACL we offer a range of popular creative courses. There are lots of art classes to choose from including drawing & painting, exploring illustration and working with mixed media. We deliver craft courses in pottery, sewing, crochet, glass techniques, garden design, floristry and more. If you want to develop skills in woodcraft or silversmithing, there are a variety of learning opportunities at the Basildon Craft Studios where you can design and create artisan gifts and heirlooms to treasure. Creative media courses are also available across Essex to help you learn things like digital photography and Photoshop skills.

To see some of the beautiful art and craft work produced by our adult learners, have a look in the gallery.

New courses are being added all the time, they run at different times during the day, weekends and evenings across our centres in Essex.
