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!
Esther Armstrong has been running these classes for over a year now and they have proved very popular with beginners and those more experienced .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. Contact Esther Armstrong here to book or for more information
What to Bring
Bring along your own art materials. Esther will email you with full details and also has a Whats App group you can join to stay in touch with any updates to the date or time and if you wish, you can share artwork, ideas and ask questions.
Places are fully funded by the Activate Garve & District project for all participants resident in Garve & District and £5 for non residents payable to the tutor. Perhaps you can car share and give someone a lift?
Thanks to Lochluichart Community Trust and to all the volunteers that support the running of the local halls.
