Leading Art Workshops & Art ~Retreats
Artreach Studios was formed in 2015 following a series of educational visual art projects that began in 2012. Artreach Studios is co-run by Colette Gambell & Kate Jerry. Artreach Studios manages the Art Gallery, Isle Contemporary in new premises Unit 1, the Old Gasworks, Mill Road, Peel, Isle of Man, where it runs its leading visual art and craft workshop programs. The gallery is set in the beautiful surroundings of Peel Harbour, just behind the House of Manannan, and ideally situated in one of the most picturesque and historical areas of the Island. Artreach Studios prides itself on creating a relaxed atmosphere in a natural environment, and practically invented the name 'workshops', an approach to art and craft that is all embracing, sharing the pleasure and enjoyment of art, putting participants first, process over outcome.
Artreach Studios offers a hands-on, art enrichment program for children & adults offering specialised art workshops, camps, online experiences and art retreats. We believe that every person is an artist ready to be encouraged, nurtured and inspired to flourish creatively. Our goal is to encourage and foster each persons vision and unique style, to inspire individuals along their creative journey. With years of experience creating within our own practices and teaching these skills to others,
we have observed that the opportunity to express oneself in visual arts helps people discover their inner confidence, creativity, inspiration, passion and talent.
INSPIRING CREATIVITY, we focus on the creative process, not on outcome. We provide exposure and inspiration to a wide variety of high-quality art materials, tools, techniques and processes. Our themes are varied, ranging from different art movements & styles, reaching out to different tastes, while providing exciting exposure to famous artists throughout history. We believe in an all encompassing approach to the visual arts and do our best to include a very well-rounded approach. Hands-on exploration includes painting, drawing, illustration, collage, assemblage, printmaking, 3D sculpture, artisan craft, up-cycled art, sewing, papier-mâché, pottery & more one-of-a-kind crafting!
