Learning Art: Attended first lesson of the course on Monday. Really enjoyable friendly and safe atmosphere. Looking forward to next week
Since the first week of the Learning Art course in September I have looked forward to my Monday morning art class. Shelly and Cathy are very friendly and welcoming and create a lovely relaxed atmosphere in which we can learn about different methods of drawing and painting. I would recommend anyone who ever fancied a go at drawing to join up with Cathy and Shelly.
Fab fab fab! I was a little nervous signing up for this course as I was not convinced I could produce anything better than preschool level...it doesn't matter! In these stressful covid times I wake up on a Tuesday morning excited about going to art in the evening. Its so friendly and takes your mind away from all the stresses of life! 100% recommend.
I‘ve been going to Cathy & Shelley’s art class for a few weeks and can thoroughly recommend it for art lovers of all abilities. As well as being made to feel very welcome in a small group, you are taught at a good pace with enough time to try different techniques in various mediums using the equipment supplied. Lots of fun, very relaxing and there’s coffee & biscuits too. What more could you want!
