Art Glossary Part 2

Good Morning,


Happy Monday, I hope you had a wonderful weekend and enjoyed the beautiful sunshine.

It's been a busy time here at A.S.K with workshops, watercolour cream teas, and preparations for upcoming events... more on the latter at a later date.

There is still space available for the workshop Saturday 6th November, Painting A Poppy in the style of Georgia O'Keefe.

All other workshops are now full.

There are kids' workshops over half term if the kids are feeling creative.

This week's Art Blog is part 2 of an Art Glossary.

Enjoy the blog and please feel free to share.

Have a great week.
