Our Adult Education programme is run by teachers and facilitators independent of the Peter Clarke Art Centre.

The teachers/facilitators rent the rooms from the Art Centre and we accept their application to run courses from this venue, provided that the courses fit into a broad Arts category.

Some courses are experimental because we like to give new teachers/facilitators a chance to add variety to our courses.

Please note the following applies to participants in this programme:

  • All black and white photocopies are R1.50 per page (A4)
  • Your course teacher/facilitator is responsible for providing refreshments during courses.
  • Please do not use the tea/coffee belonging to PCAC.
  • Please do not use equipment like paper, paints, brushes, scissors, etc. in the classrooms, as these are used by our children and come off the PCAC budget.
  • We unfortunately do not have storage facilities for work in progress.
  • Please recycle all paper and card, but other rubbish is to be thrown into a normal bin.
  • PLEASE LEAVE THE CLASSROOM AS YOU FOUND IT.

We hope you will benefit from the courses offered by our Adult Education programmes.

Please view the workshops available and contact the course organiser to secure your place.
