Brush up your drawing and painting skills at new Burnham art classes

Somerset County Council's Skills and Learning Centre in Burnham-On-Sea will be starting two new art courses later this month.

Both courses will be taught by local artist Ade Bowen and will take place at the Skills and Learning Centre in Princess Street.

The first course, Art School Drawing Skills, is a five week programme which teaches the basics of drawing. The course runs on Tuesdays between 7pm and 9pm starting on Tuesday 21st April and finishing on Tuesday 19th May.

"The fun course will give learners the skills to draw shape, tone and texture enabling them to create a well composed picture," said a spokesperson for the centre.

The second course, Abstract Art, runs over four weeks and will introduce a different style of abstract art such as Cubism, Abstract Expressionism and Surrealism. The course is on Thursdays between 9.30am and 12 noon starting on Thursday 23rd April and finishing on Thursday 14th May.

"Learners will explore the ideas and reasons behind each art movement and have a go at creating their own painting in each style," added the spokeswoman.

Courses may be booked by calling 01278 783057 or booking online here.
