Adults across Harrogate were invited to get a taste of the curriculum during the college’s Have a Go Fortnight, as part of the national Festival of Learning.

The festival runs each year to celebrate the benefits of lifelong learning, such as improved wellbeing, increased confidence and developing new skills.

Over two weeks, adults aged 19 and over took part in a range of taster sessions to discover a range of diverse subjects. The tasters included still life drawing, ceramics and print, film and animation, hairdressing and computer software.

Alison Carney, Creative Arts Tutor at Harrogate College, said: “The still life drawing session was really positive and enjoyable, it was great to see new faces in a relaxing and social environment. All attendees were keen to know more about the course; it was great to see them all engaged and eager to learn.”

Alex Watson, who attended the still life drawing taster, said: “I chose this taster as I’ve always been interested in art and I love to learn. 

“The session was brilliant; I enjoyed meeting the other attendees and the tutor, Alison, was fantastic! She was incredibly encouraging and friendly in her professionalism.”
