The Dawn Brown Foundation for adult learners in Gateshead

Final class of term!

What a cracking last session, a movie, fab flapjacks, brilliant paintings! We are back on Thursday 27th April 10am. Next term we agreed we would include technical recaps and information about artists new to you. There will be choice of either two projects (interiors and animals) or one term-long personal project. You choose which option you prefer. Meanwhile enjoy the paintings below and have a great break.
