Enjoy an experiential journey involving a variety of fun forms of artistic expression through experimenting and playing. There are no rules and no predicted outcomes other than enjoyment and the gathering of some new skills. Each session will cover different aspects of art expression. Lizzie Scott is a retired educator who has come late to art expression with a variety of experiences in drawing, acrylics, watercolour, oils and mixed media. You may have seen her exhibition in The Grove Library last November.
