Do any of these apply to you?

During Lockdown:

  • Have you found you needed more interesting things to do?
  • Have you tried some art work and found you liked it?
  • Tried some art work and found you were quite good at it? (You could come and show us
    how to do it!)
  • Found you would have liked some help? (We all help each other anyway and have a laugh
    when it goes wrong)
  • Would have loved to have a go but didn’t have any materials.

If you have never done any drawing or painting but would like to try, we can help. We can show you some of the basics and provide you with some materials until you decide if you want to carry on and buy your own.

Why not come and visit us… even join us for a coffee when we start again and see what we do.

We meet on Monday mornings 9.30-11.30am.
