Art Classes

Alison Drake  holds a Learn to paint in Watercolour class each Thursday from 10.a.m to 2.p.m. in the Village Hall Annex.

Alison is a mainly self taught professional Artist who began painting thirty years ago and has taught for the past four years. She runs four Art Holidays per year and also gives demonstrations for Art clubs and Societies.

Alison uses various mediums in her own work including watercolour, inks, acrylics and oils. Her own approach is fresh and free flowing and painting for her is about the passion and ability to express her feelings through colour and imagination with inspiration often drawn from her surroundings with its flora and fauna. Alison exhibits in several galleries and has also sold works to Canada and Australia.

The classes at the Village Hall are held in a social and relaxed atmosphere and suit beginners and intermediates. Alison will take you step by step with plenty of one to one guidance to build up a complete painting.

She takes great pleasure in teaching and seeing her pupils develop and improve their skills and believes there is an artist in us all.
