The next generation of Ardmore artists

Sailing Away on the Zambezi…

Take a sneak peek at Ardmore’s first-ever painting commission. This magnificent scene was painted in acrylic by Sidney Nyabeze and Catherine Berning and depicts a troop of monkeys navigating the Zambezi River in a Mokoro.

Youth Day !

As we celebrate Youth Day this Friday the 16th of June, it seems apt to bring you the latest on Ardmore Ceramic Art’s Winter School. In its third year, the programme runs for three months from May to July and aims to uncover new talent and give a lucky few the opportunity to hone their skills and potentially gain full-time employment at Ardmore.

This year’s intake of 30 students under the guidance of Fee Halsted, Wiseman Ndlovu and Megan Berning will be taught drawing, painting and sculpting, as well as business, art history, marketing and finance. As Wiseman Ndlovu says, “It gives me great pleasure to grow more artists for Ardmore, to make Ardmore live on, when I and others are gone.”

Making you smile!

Bennet’s sculpture of a little boy laughing at his own nonsense as he plays with his zebra clay toys is a perfect example of how the Ardmore artists and their creativity continue to keep Fée enthralled.
