me to grow and that can never be a bad thing!!!!" - Tracy
are many places you can buy art materials. On the high street, places
such as 'The Works', Wilko, or pound shops, have many items - although
they tend to be price over quality. However, it will give you the opportunity
to try things out with little outlay until you discover the mediums you
prefer working with - then you can purchase better quality items. As you
develop your work, good quality materials start to become more important
- particularly where paints and brushes are concerned. Another outlet
you could visit is The
have a store finder here.
Art Group Feedback
"Thoroughly enjoying the classes so far, already feel I learnt so much... There's a lovely energy in the class and it feels like everyone has gelled well which just adds to a more positive experience." - Tracy
"I have been in the class about 35 weeks now. I have really enjoyed the class,we have used all kinds of mediums and visited a church in methley to sketch outside graves trees walls. Inside we sketched mouseman furniture and we have sketched in the countryside at St Aidan's site. Every one in the class has improved It is a very friendly class." - Stan
"As an absolute beginner, the introductions to many techniques, approaches and working with various mediums, has enabled me to discover & learn about a fairly wide variety of Art.
"I can't say enough, how frustrated I've been with my inability to pick up several techniques or learning points at the beginning of many classes, being a beginner, but by the end of class, many times I've left with a smile on my face, after managing to rise to the challenge and producing something for me, that is worthwhile.
"The photographs of our work, Richard takes for the website and the feedback each week, has given me more confidence, feeling proud sometimes ("did I do that?" ), or just as positively, enabling me to improve, with the use of constructive feedback.
Moreover the group has a warm rapport, due to the people in it, making it a nice place to be." - Mags
"I really did enjoy the experience. To look at all different mediums. I quickly discovered which did appeal. Unfortunately I found it dull if it wasn't my thing e.g. perspectives drawing, glass objects, or stitching. A sign of my impatience ??
" The teaching was very good and positive especially things like shadows. Sadly there were times when I wasn't able to attend and I found it rather expensive then, but I understand the reasoning. The venue was rather dark and it could be cumbersome the amount of items to transport.
"Having been slightly negative, I miss the group and the time it allows me to lose myself in art. I was considering returning in autumn but from your email Richard, it looks as though it is finishing. Thanks and best wishes for your future." - Rebecca
"I think one word sums up our class with Richard at RiversMeet 'challenging' As a class we have been opened up to a whole new world of what comes under the heading 'art' We have used a wide variety of medium, covering a spectrum of projects and theory. As a class our abilities and desires are widely differing, Richard has managed to deal with this admirably. I am sorry he is moving on, thank you Kath."
