The basics will be covered such as choice and use of materials, sketching, drawing and painting using accurate observation with imaginative or semi-abstract approaches. Each class will be fun and supportive with its own theme, using a mixture of demos and instruction, taking inspiration from both man-made and natural subjects.
Aimed at beginners and those starting afresh.
