Wouldn't it be good to try out art materials without having to buy them first ?? Well our Taster Space now allows you the opportunity to do just that, whenever the shop is open. Come along and explore the materials.
For the month of May we will be offering Saturday afternoon taster sessions in COLOURING PENS. All materials and a cup of tea or coffee provided.
The Taster Session programme has been re-instigated under a new structure:
It will be held each Saturday afternoon from 13.30 to 15.30. Each month we will focus on one type of media, or you can bring along your own work.
To get us started, January will feature CHALKS.
We shall continue in February with OIL PASTELS
In March, we shall be trying WATERCOLOUR
In April, we will be playing with INKTENSE - these are versatile pencils that you can draw and paint with.
May we will be featuring COLOUR PENS - there are so many to choose from and our inspiration will come from creating Journals
June will feature how to use COLLAGE PAPERS
In July we shall be exploring how to use MONO PRINT
August's topic will be PASTELS
In September we will be featuring DRAWING CHARCOALS.
In October we shall look at some of the different techniques of ACRYLICS
In November we shall be looking at drawing with COSMIC SHIMMERS
For December, we'll be looking at GLITTER BAUBLES, create something for the festive season!
We look forward to seeing you!
People of all ages are welcome to our Taster Sessions, although if you are under 16 you will need to be accompanied by an authorised adult.
If you would like to come you can just turn up on the day. Booking isn’t essential, but if you can give us a call on 873234 beforehand we will have an idea of the numbers attending. Thank you.
Whether you live in Orkney or are here as a visitor, you will be very welcome to come along to these sessions and try out the different materials and media.
