Even if you don’t think you are creative give it a go as we will help you create your own artwork in easy steps.  This course is about learning new skills and switching off from worrying, rather than becoming the next Picasso!

“I am not very arty and I joined because I wanted to find something to distract myself from constant worrying.  Attending online suits me and I really enjoyed chatting to other people and finding out how much we had in common. Very relaxing and inspiring!”
