members working in the art class. The art classes are very diverse, with beginners and those who have been coming for many years…

We find that many people make a New Year’s resolution to finally take up art! Then start to hesitate or feel apprehensive because they feel they have to be born with a natural talent to do art. UNTRUE. Anyone can learn art in the same way as learning most things in life: driving a car, baking a cake or playing a sport. It’s a common myth that only those with a natural artistic skill can do art. No, all the great masters of art had tuition. Were taught how to draw and paint.

Believing you cannot do art is the biggest reason why those wanting to take it up don’t! This is why you should visit the art class you have in mind, whether it’s ours or another one you’re interested in, go along and talk them; find out more, see what they are doing before you make a decision. We welcome anyone wanting to come along to find out more.

When people first take up art, they only think of producing a painting that’s termed ‘Representational art’. In other words, your natural instinct wants to paint very realistically or photographically. Yes, to begin with that’s what you do, but all the time you will be guided to other ways of doing art: semi-abstract and abstract, like the example above. All this will be explained and shown to you as you progress through a structured course, learning in sequence and at your own pace. You’re not in competition with anyone, you do what’s comfortable to you.
