Courtyard Arts Centre

Courtyard Arts Centre About Us

At Courtyard our aim is simple: to provide a launch pad for all members of the community to achieve their artistic potential.

Courtyard Arts is a small but lively community arts centre on Port Vale in Hertford. We offer art classes for adults and children, alongside a busy ceramics studio and vibrant programme of changing exhibitions. We also have artists studios, a small cafe and a gift shop show-casing work by local makers. A lot of our activity takes place in the local community where we provide bespoke workshops for local school children, dementia sufferers, recovering addicts and young carers, to name a few, as part of our extensive outreach work.

Courtyard Arts was founded in 1995, in a disused stable block, by a group of enthusiastic local artists who wanted eveyone in the community to have access to art in a friendly environment, whatever their ability. We hope you'll come and visit us at Courtyard to see for yourself the work that we do and perhaps sign up for a class, visit an exhibition or even volunteer to get involved.

We are a self-funded charity run by a group of Trustees, 4 part-time staff and 40 volunteers.
