Join a weekly Saturday morning art class in Stockton Brook with Louise Adams



Come and enjoy a happy morning in the company of artists, from beginners to those who would like to get back into something artistic. The weekly art classes are led by Louise Adams, an artist and designer who will give individual tuition and support. Book a class on a date to suit you .... see if you like it! Louise studied at North Staffordshire Polytechnic and The Royal College of Art. She worked as a designer in the Ceramic industry, becoming Art Director of The Royal Crown Derby Porcelain Company. Now, she paints, designs and teaches... all of which inspire her. The classes are based in the spacious, warm Stockton Brook Scout & Guide HQ, set in beautiful North Staffordshire. We send out a weekly newsletter, full of inspiration, and Louise often brings flowers and other interesting items to paint. She will show you some of her ideas and techniques and most of all, inspire your creativity. You can work in a variety of artists' materials from beautiful soft pastels to watercolours and gouache, acrylics and coloured pencil. Subjects and projects we’ve explored during the last year are as varied as Birds, Figures in a Landscape, Portraits, Nature, The Seasons to Pop Art, Impressionism, Buildings and Flowers. The building is next to a species rich wildflower meadow, the Caldon Canal and lovely slopes with views across a valley. When the weather is good, we can work outside.
