Art Glossary

Good morning,

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.

Adult workshops:-

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 News:-

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.

Enjoy the blog...It's a glossary of some art terms. There are so many so I've narrowed it down to a few. More next week?
