I’ll be running another block of ‘Art for Beginners’ classes at Forgan Arts Centre at Newport on Tay, Fife DD6 8RA on Wednesday evenings. These classes are proving popular, with this being block 5. Participants often have a broad range of experience – some have never done any art before, while others return from previous blocks. Through a mix of demonstrations and with guidance, everyone is encouraged to progress and develop their own style of work in a fun and supportive atmosphere, with activities that are accessible for everyone. Basic principles such as choice and use of materials, drawing skills, composition, perspective and use of colour are covered, and classes have an underlying theme, often suggested by those taking part. Here’s the dates: August 15th, 22nd, 29th, September 5th, 12th, 19th, 26th (7-9pm). Contact the arts centre to book.
