Have fun and express your inner artist in a relaxed, social and therapeutic session.

In this class you can learn a range of different techniques to be able to create something of your own and experiment – even if you have never held a paintbrush! Sessions are flexible and responsive, with members choosing which styles and methods they would like to use.

No preparation is necessary and if you do not have time to finish your work during the session you may take it home, or continue working on a piece over a number of weeks.

Session Structure:

  • Introduction
  • Warm up
  • Techniques
  • Explanation of next activity/ Q & A
  • Idea generation and completion of painting
  • Show and tell
ARC’s Silver Programme is supported by a Cultural Volunteers scheme which helps participants to attend and participate in over 50s activity.  For more information and to meet our current volunteers, please click here.
