Leisure Creative

This course will take you in the direction of your inner creativity.

Julia McLeish is a professional artist, who guides you through learning basic drawing and painting skills; exploring new mediums, which can then be combined to expand your creative art work.

The course includes charcoal, graphite and watercolour pencils as well as painting with watercolours and acrylics.

Experiment and combine these techniques with collage, using stencils, inks and introducing journal art to reflect on your artistic journey.
