We are a friendly and supportive art group who meet at South Yardley Library every Monday morning. The group are of mixed abilities some have been painting for over ten years, others started and joined the group last year. Vicki the Tutor demonstrates and teaches drawing and painting skills, covering all mediums and mixed media techniques such as watercolours, acrylics and chalk pastels. We tackle different themes and images such as trees, still life and water, this is all depending on the needs and wants of the group.
Another important part of attending the art group is for social interaction and relaxation. Each week we have some interesting conversations and a few giggles and if some members arrive a little stressed they always seem to leave more relaxed and smiling. It is a great feeling when you learn how to use a technique to illustrate or create an impression of what you want to draw or paint and even better when you have created something you are proud of. Drawing and painting can also be frustrating and challenging but that is why we think art as a hobby is good for you because it challenges you and gets the brain ticking.
If you are interested in joining an art class or want to try it you should go for it, Vicki is starting new art classes at South Yardley Library and Solihull Arts Complex soon, or if you are interested in purchasing any art call Vicki Gorman on 07940483320.
