Thursday Skills

Are you serious about your art? Is it important to you to feel you understand more about art skills? Then these sessions are for you.

‘This is a really great activity for children, it (was) really different from anything I’ve taken them to in the past’

The inspiration comes from the galleries or a programme the gallery is running. At the beginning of each session you’ll will spend time with the artist learning a new technique that you will be experimenting with. You will have the chance to be creative and show your own personality through your work using the technique that was demonstrated.
