Learn about the history and techniques of different artists and art movements through practical creative lessons. We are delighted to offer a series of 5 week short courses, designed to give you bite-sized nuggets of art inspiration that you can apply to your own painting and drawing projects. This course is open to all and is suitable for absolute beginners and those who wish to develop their art practice in a social and creatively engaging environment. Every session will begin with an informal presentation and an introduction to a new theme. You will have the opportunity to view demonstrations and to explore new techniques at your own pace.
