I'm starting a new venue......

My Thursday art classes are getting really popular, so much so that I can't fit everyone in. So I'm starting a new venue at Fairkytes Art Centre in Hornchurch on Tuesday mornings. So my art class that I teach on a Thursday morning which covers a wide range of media will be repeated on a Tuesday morning.

I'm excited to start a new venue and at Fairkytes which has been an art and cultural hub in Havering for years now. We'll be based in the art room overlooking the garden. Plus I've just bought a new toy, a projector, so I can show everyone inspiring artists along with step by step instructions for anything we're working on. So if you're interested in joining us get in touch and pop along.

I'm running them on a pay as you go basis, which everyone is loving as you only pay for the sessions you can make. 

Here's a little outline of what we'll be covering.....

Exhibition at Ingrebourne Valley Visitors Centre, Hornchurch Country Park

Ingrebourne Visitors Centre at Hornchurch Country Park, where I teach my weekly art classes, kindly let me have the room for the day to have an exhibition on Saturday showcasing all of the work we've been creating. There was amazing artworks, as you can see, and I'm so proud of them all! There were so many positive comments from the public which just makes me even prouder especially when some were too nervous to put anything in. Plus they sold a few pieces too, adding a cheery on top of the icing!

Guess whose work I forgot on the day? My own mother!! Yep which was all framed and sitting in my house well before the exhibition. So a little dash back to the house from my other half, a re-jiggle of the work and she was in, receiving loads of positive comments for her lion! 

I even had a table set up to do some drawing and painting on the day, which of course the kids loved. It's funny how adults get too embarassed to join in whereas children have no worries whatsoever.
