The artist Mary Lloyd Jones and Paul Joyner from the National Library of Wales are hosting a series of open public art seminars in the Old College.

The seminars, Why Art ?, look at many aspects of visual art and the inspiration needed to be creative.

The latest in the series will be held at 1pm on Wednesday 4 October 2017 in the Seddon Room in the Old College and access is free.

This will be the second seminar in a series of four, with the next being held on Wednesday 1st November, and the last held on Wednesday 6 December 2017.

Mary Lloyd Jones and Paul Joyner have an art studio on the Ground floor of the Old College.

Mary Lloyd Jones said: “This building is undoubtedly inspirational and having a place to work in such a special location is a privilege. This is one of the nation's most important treasures in terms of architecture and history and embodies the ambition of the Welsh in education.”

The seminars will be held bilingually and everyone is warmly welcomed.

In July, the Heritage Lottery Fund announced that they had earmarked £ 10.5m for the University's ambitious project to renew the Old College, that will include the creation of a museum, art galleries, science and space center, and units for artists.

The Old College is open to the public during term time from 8am to 9pm Monday to Friday and from 10am to 4pm on Saturdays.
