Changes for 2018
Workshops are held in the Art room at Clements hall, Nunthorpe Road in York. 12.30-4.30pm
We start with tea and coffee and a chance to relax and get to know each other. After explaining the expected outcomes for the day and demonstrating the principle of the theme it will be your chance to have a go, experimenting with media and getting in touch with with your artistic side.
And just to make sure your batteries are well and truly recharged we stop at about 2.30pm for a coffee and cake break...
I will guide you all the way, and by the end of the day you should have a piece of completed artwork to decorate your walls at home.
Cost, including all art materials £40
