open art surgeries

Open art ‘surgeries’ are open sessions in the studio, where artists Cassandra and John make themselves available to you for all manner of questions and queries you may have to do with your own artwork, or the subject in general. You may want guidance on a particular painting you are working on, advice on setting up your studio for best practice, or help with choosing the right paints and brushes for your needs. No subject is off limits and no question is a silly one. You don’t even need to be attending any of our art classes, and there is no obligation to do so. We know how difficult it is to keep motivated with all the distractions that life can bring, and we want to help and encourage art lovers of all abilities to keep drawing and painting. No need to book, just come along and see us.
