I hope you're well this Monday 27th September, the last Monday in September.
I've slowly settled back into the day-to-day running of A.S.K Gallery/Studio after a 2-week break.
Here is the news of the week:-
Kids' Workshop:- Half term is fast approaching and there are 2 morning Art activities for kids aged 7 - 12. It's only £15.00 if you fancy a break from parenting or grandparent duty. I have an up-to-date D.B.S.
Tuesday & Wednesday 26th/27th October 10 am - 12 noon.
Abstract Acrylic Landscapes, Saturday 9th October 10 am - 3 pm.
There is still time to book a space for this full day's workshop where you can create your individual painting on canvas.
It's perfect for beginners to intermediate.
Saturday 23rd October:- Lowry Street Scene in Watercolours- Fully Booked
Saturday 6th November:- Poppy Painting in the style of Georgia O'Keefe
There is still time to book a space on this full-day workshop painting a beautiful Poppy on a canvas.
Murphy is suffering from his arthritis but he visited the vets last week and was a real trooper. He's now on anti-inflammatories which will hopefully ease his pain and give him more movement.
He certainly hasn't lost his appetite or his sense of fun.
