Summer Art Tonic at The Annexe

Fri 19 January - Sat 3 February


Wendy Anne Hawkes will be bringing her popular Art Tonic art lessons to The Annexe at Portland over summer for all those who needs a creative boost.

This summer Adult Art Tonic sessions will focus on Architecture, using the fascinating buildings of The Foundations to learn skills in pencil sketching, charcoal and watercolours. Teen Art Tonic and Kids Art Tonic will be focussed on Colour while working with Watercolours, Oil Pastels and Acrylic Paint. All materials will be provided.

Mindful Art Tonic sessions use art to focus participants on the here and now, letting go of worries and stresses for an hour. These techniques can then be used at home or any time a stress relieving break is needed. These sessions are also an opportunity to meet new people, catch up with old friends and feel connected to your community.
