Returning to Art is a refresher course for rekindling that love of art from school that you perhaps haven’t had a chance to continue. It is an opportunity to reignite your spark for the creative subject.

The course begins with drawing techniques from still life looking at composition, proportion, and the elements of art. We will work with a wide variety of materials, including mixed media, discovering a range of two-dimensional art techniques through the work of other artists. Please bring along an apron, a black fine-liner pen, a range of drawing pencils, and a ruler, eraser and sharpener.

The course will be led by Lynne Mackay, an artist and secondary school art teacher for over 20 years. As a farmer’s daughter growing up on the Somerset Levels, she has always had a huge passion for natural beauty. Lynne is inspired by the surrounding landscapes, flora and fauna of the Somerset Levels and Cornish seascapes.

She also loves to capture treasured memories in pencil, acrylic, watercolour painting, reduction lino printing, hand embroidered felt appliqué and machine embroidery.
