Loveday Arts Club has been running at Loveday since 2016, where Members have enjoyed a dynamic, vibrant and inspiring curriculum of therapeutic art workshops.
Created and hosted by Artist in Residence Grace Holliday, an acclaimed Illustrator, Mark-Maker and Creative Educator, Members have benefited immensely from their weekly artist output which has covered a wide array of visual arts including collage, mixed media, portrait, illustrating, painting, sculpture and photography.
Highly acclaimed artist
In high demand and sought out for her knowledge, creative approach and excellence as a Creative Educator, Grace has delivered events and workshops in some of the country’s most esteemed establishments including Central Saint Martins, Brighton University, The University of West London, London College of Communication, Royal College of Art, Camberwell College of Arts, Dulwich Picture Gallery, The House of Illustration, The Wallace Collection and The Barbican amongst many more! Loveday is honoured for Grace to hold a residency where our Members also benefit from her teachings.
Grace’s extreme talent has also extended to fashion, where she designed a collection for Anthropolgies, made from recycled plastic bottles and inspired by Springtime meadows, nature and Victorian architecture.
Grace employs her extensive educational experience to deliver workshops that resonate and connect with Members. Grace truly takes the time to get to know each Member, to understand their personalities, hobbies and their interest and has cultivated the curriculum to embrace elements of life, love, memories and seasonal events. Grace delivers connectedness in every session, making the art relevant to each individual to ensure they enjoy the therapeutic benefits of art making.
