The program will be delivered by two qualified native English speaking teachers with a collective experience of over 15 years teaching creative / activity based subjects. There will also be visiting specialist teachers, practicing artists’ talks, teaching assistants and interns to offer students as much one-to-one feedback and guidance as possible.
We employ teaching assistants and support interns who are active participants in Work Room Four projects and events. Trusted and talented, they bring enthusiasm and energy to our summer classes as well as that all-important extra pair of hands to move activities along. At no point will a student be left alone with an assistant, intern or guest speaker.

Work Room Four is a studio designed and run to promote and nurture creative collaboration. Some of the studios are rented out to private individuals who we know well and work with. It is likely they will be in their studios while the classes take place in the main gallery area. To find out who they are and what they do click on the blank face above. We believe an industrious environment will only add to the experience for the students.
