This innovative and diverse creative Arts House is conveniently located in Alloa, Central Scotland and has grown in both local association and international recognition since its inception in 2010.
Resonate Arts House unites the RAH Academy and teaching venue which promotes an experimental and inclusive environment, an Arts Materials Shop, the Swarm Gallery presenting ongoing exhibitions and Associate, Residency and Affiliate Artist Programmes all under one roof.
A contemporary art space which exhibits a broad range of art works across the creative spectrum throughout the year. Exhibitions include painting, Artists Books, sculpture, poetry, textiles, works on paper, site-specific installations and pottery.
Associate Artists Programme
Resonate Arts House has implemented an Associate Artist programme. The invited Artists and Crafters join the team and are promoted within their chosen discipline through the established industry roots and growing network of the national and international Resonate Arts Community.
The objective to advance the arts within the local and wider community through training and personal development is a core aim of the Resonate Academy.
Qualified, experienced, insured and Disclosure Checked Artists and Crafters, working together have developed a range of courses and workshops for all abilities and ages. Providing an introduction to a selection of arts disciplines for the Beginner through to an in-depth investigation into a specialist subject for the Professional; there is something for everyone.
All Courses and Workshops are held at the Resonate Arts House and a selection of these has been developed for taking to the community, travelling to venues around Scotland throughout the year.
Arts Materials Shop
A good selection of quality Oil and Acrylic Paints and Medium, watercolours, pastels, canvases, art pads, pencils, water and solvent based glass paint, 3D Touch paint, pyrography kits and wooden blanks and boxes, air drying clay and much more is on offer in the small, but perfectly formed shop at Resonate.
The Happiness Festival
There is inescapable evidence of the growing support within communities for the personal ‘well being’ of fellow individuals and for the ‘neighbourhood’ as a whole.
Resonate Arts House and The Alloa Advertiser newspaper have teamed up to produce the month long festival borne from this grass roots energy and share the happiness through creativity both locally and internationally. Details of the 2012 festival are at www.thehappinesfestival.co.uk
