Get Creative! Give it a Try!
Arty goings on!
Having never done any art I was a bit nervous about joining the Art Group. I soon realised my worries were unfounded. Esther, our tutor, takes us step by step through techniques and keeps things as simple as possible. The classes are equally suitable for those with previous experience and novices like me.
It’s cheap too! With a basic starter kit of materials you can create so much. We started with watercolours but we also explore other mediums, such as pastel and charcoal.
Whilst I’m not producing masterpieces I have used the skills learnt to paint all sorts, including birds and landscapes. It’s a great way to relax, and the end product is secondary to the pleasure of just doing the artwork. I now use some of my paintings to produce greeting cards.
I’d encourage others to give it a go. Everyone in the class is supportive of each other and there’s good banter to be enjoyed. I hope you will feel as inspired as I do, there’s so much more to learn and more fun to be had!
Each class has individual tasks so it is easy to join in. You will watch Esther create the picture first, then have a go yourself. Book here! Just click on Art Tutor from the drop down menu on the contact form
