Finding the right course for you
Types of courses
MAC's term courses run for 11 or 12 weeks, across spring, summer and autumn. We have over 150 sessions to choose from, tailored to various different abilities, so you can be sure to find the perfect setting to ignite a new creative passion or develop your current skills. Explore our term courses.
Our short courses run from one day to six weeks. If you're looking to try something new, or have other time commitments, our short courses offer the perfect way to get creative at MAC. Explore all our short courses.
Our courses and workshops have been developed with specific age ranges in mind, so we ask that you keep to those suggested.
No previous experience is expected. You will develop basic skills and knowledge.
Suitable for beginners or those with limited or rusty previous experience.
Develop your existing skills and knowledge, and begin to explore more complex techniques.
Perfect for those who still find more complex techniques a bit difficult, and are looking to refine their skills.
Develop your independent learning and practice, with support and guidance from our tutors and resources. Ideal for those who are confident in their skills, but may appreciate additional advice.
Experienced and confident working alone? Continue your practice independently and develop your artistic skills with access to our workshops and studios beyond scheduled class times. Find out more about MAC's artist pass.
We are committed to making our courses accessible for people with disabilities and additional needs. If you have any questions or requirements you would like to discuss, please get in touch and we will strive to make adjustments wherever possible. MAC is completely wheelchair accessible. We provide complimentary tickets if you require a carer or companion to provide support for an activity.

MAC's save-a-space scheme
We try very hard to make our artistic activity as affordable as possible, subsidising where we can, but we know that it helps to spread the cost. With the MAC save-a-space scheme, you can secure your space on a course for a deposit of £30, with the balance due 3 weeks before the course begins. Find out more about MAC's save-a-space scheme.
