If you're looking for something to do in lockdown, something that may challenge and expand your psyche, you've come to the right place.

You can take art head on with Urban Sketching for Beginners; Watercolour for Beginners; Portrait Drawing for Beginners; Intro to Ink Art; Illustrated To Do Lists; Watercolour for Beginners - rock formations with Marloes and Watercolour for Beginners - fruit and vegetables with Emilie; and more, with a few of the workshops running a couple of times eg.
