Drawing & painting

Making art is a wonderful way to express ourselves. It’s mindful too which is great for our mental wellbeing. Our Virtual Village Hall artists and art tutors want you to have fun experimenting. It’s not about creating a masterpiece, it’s about trying something new. Here you’ll find sketching and drawing classes, watercolour and acrylic painting demonstrations, and paint pouring and plate painting sessions. Why not pick up a drawing pencil, pen or paintbrush today and see where it takes you?
