mixed media leaves, monthly blog... August

Good Morning, 

How are you on this glorious Monday morning, the first Monday of August, my second month of my monthly Art blog.


The workshops have been up and running now for a month. With the beautiful warm weather we've been having, the doors and windows are wide open. The maximum number of people has been halved from 6 down to 3. This not only allows for social distancing, there is more 1-1 tuition on tap.

The majority of the workshops are fully booked. There is one space available Friday 14th August Drawing Skills Workshop and Saturday 10th October Wax, Scrunch and paint.

I am planning more workshops working in oil pastels, acrylic painting and watercolours.

This month's art skill is Mixed Media Leaves.

Enjoy... have a great August and I hope to see you soon.
