Brighten your winter with some colour! Join tutor Sue Tilbury in painting a portrait of the Mexican artist Frida Khalo using your own patterns and designs in beautiful bold vibrant colours. What could make you happier! You can also substitute Frida’s face with your own self portrait if you prefer, dressed in Frida’s multi coloured style!
