Community Art is at the forefront of our work and all profits made from trading go directly into our community projects.

The Whistle Art Stop is an Arts Award Centre and provides vocational training to young people aged from 7 - 25 years. This is a free service funded by Northumberland County Council. Please call 01434 320800 for more information or drop in and discuss.

We encourage all members of the community to engage with our artists in residence who are on the graduate art programme. Here are some of the young people in the studio with Sarah Riseborough.

Here are some of the Klarty Klub working with Stephen Pritchard during Stevie Ronnie's exhibition 'Northern Game'

We run an adult drop in session every Thursday 10 - 3pm giving people a space to work in quietly and to meet with like minded.

Our youth work varies from all types of art including photography to computer training. Here is Ben working on his Bronze Arts Award.

Every year we participate in the 'Big Draw'. It's a Family Fun Day with lots of different types of art to learn and do.

Recycle, recycle and recycle some more - that's our art promise to the environment.

'Wor Space' is a project converting the wasteland around the Whistle Art Stop into a community garden. Here are the young people at work making planters to grow vegetables in.

We have won two awards from Love Northumberland for our community work to date and an invite to the Queen's Garden Party!

Our lead artists are all DBS checked but we ask that any young people under 8 be accompanied by their parents. He's only acting, by the way!
