Calling all budding artists and those of you out there that are interested in making Art, but believe you can't, whatever age! We have great news for you... you can CreARTS!
CreARTS is the brainchild of Susan who runs a variety of workshops to locals in comfortable, relaxed and informal atmosphere, whilst supporting local wine bars and coffee shops.
Our first Oil paint and pastels workshop was a year ago. A group of terrific artist all had one thing in common they loved Art and wanted to learn new skills and to improve their style and techniques.

If only we had a penny every time we heard an adult cry out ‘I cannot draw', or' I’m rubbish' or 'I haven't done any art since school...Well...Our immediate reaction is ‘Oh, yes you can!’ We truly believe that any person can learn the skills of drawing and painting. It can be discovered and developed once you have learned the basics. We have seen the results first hand, experienced it in our teaching careers.
It requires a slight change of mindset... It’s all about observation, the more you look, the more you see. The more you are aware of your surroundings by observing colour, shape, form, texture, pattern, the more you will gain the confidence to CreARTS!
All workshops are inclusive of materials and a info worksheet. Individual attention is given to every artist to build on their skills. We will help you and ensure you will leave every workshop with pieces of artwork you will be proud to adorn your walls.
