Belvedere Community Centre is PROUD to present to you the wonderful artwork of the people of Belvedere! Here are just some examples and stories from our Art classes and Craft Sessions. Belvedere Community Centre currently offers two professionally led Art sessions by renowned artists, Nicola Corrigan and Angie Stocker  (also on Instagram: @stockerangela). We are grateful for the partnership with Three Rivers and Peabody that allows us to provide this amazing opportunity for the people of Belvedere and beyond. Three Rivers is a new arts and social change agency for the London Borough of Bexley. Three Rivers is led by Scott Burrell with assisted artistic direction by famous multimedia artist Aya Haidar . 

We currently hold our popular afternoon Art classes on Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons. We also hold a free craft session on Wednesday morning/lunchtime.

We are incredibly excited to bring the people of Belvedere and Bexley such high quality access to the arts… we already have PERFORMING ARTS FOR CHILDREN FROM HOLLYWOOD ON THURSDAY EVENINGS but we also hope to expand provision in the future to other artistic pursuits and activities and enrich and enhance the cultural and social fabric of our vibrant community.

So please enjoy the fantastic work and stories of the people of Belvedere and Bexley… and if you would like to take part, please do come along or contact us for more details!
