I am a retired English teacher who has retired from teaching but not from life, which I intend to live to the full. With all my hobbies, I'm busier now than ever with my art groups, small business and gardening.

All you wanted to know about art but to frightened to ask
There are many of us who look at those who can paint and draw in awe. Even Leonardo wasn't born an artistic genius, his work was due to good old fashioned hard work and positive feedback. The rest is procrastination and that's where belonging to an art group can help with motivation and inspiration.
The Rockingham Regional Arts run five different art groups at the Gary Holland Centre, in the upstairs studio at 19 Kent St Rockingham. The five different groups are Life Drawing, Acrylics, Art (no toxic mediums), Pastels and Water Colour.
Some of the member benefits include: Free access to the RRA library Eligibilty to participate in art exhibitions Discounts at Jackson Drawing Supplies Pty (10%), Oxlades (15%) and Hu Kendall &Co(10%) Materials at cost prices through the group
Most importantly you'll get the positive feedback, inspiration and friendship provided by a group of like minded people. Also, there's free morning and afternoon tea. Members do not have to have any past experience, all are welcome.
