Mixed Media Birds....September Blog

Good Morning,

This month's art blog is a week early due to exciting developments here at A.S.K Art & Design.

The studio is being extended, a big and messy job. There are no workshops till 26th September due to the developments.

The expansion will mean 3 more spaces, which, will allow for social distancing.

Exciting times!!!

The activity this month is called Mixed Media Birds and is suitable for all abilities and ages.

Workshops:-

The workshops are up and running, maximum 3 people until the studio is expanded. It's been lovely to be up and running again, seeing many returning clients. Social distancing is in place, hand gel and anti- bacterial wipes are available too. The studio is also thoroughly cleaned before and after each session.

There is availability for Friday 16th October Watercolour Techniques & Saturday 17th October Oil Pastel Skies.


Paintings :-

My artwork is ongoing and updated every time a new piece is completed.

If you would like to purchase a piece, this can be paid for over a period of time via standing order.

I'm also available for commissions, whether it's a painting or drawing I will work with you to achieve your dream art work.


Enjoy the art activity, and I look forward to seeing you in the autumn.
