The Create Escape
Heart to Art
Wednesday 12th Feb 2020, 10am – 4pm

As early as the Middle Ages, heart-shaped symbols such as pine cones and leaves were used in paintings, but it was only in the 19th century that the heart came to symbolise a deep feeling of affection and heart-shaped gifts were presented to a loved-one on Valentine’s Day.

Pam is an artist and illustrator who has taught adults visual subjects from photography and computer software, to keeping a sketchbook for pleasure. She has bags of experience in helping reluctant artists rediscover forgotten drawing skills. Pam brings her love of design, her inspiration and appreciation of the natural world to this enjoyable and interesting course.

You will have the satisfaction of making a beautiful and unusual keepsake for a family member or friend in just a few hours and well as enjoying an amusing, interesting and sociable activity.

You will learn:
• How to prepare the slate blank 
• What paints and pens you can use
• Tricks and tips to help you create your best design
• What to say in the message
• How to get started on the drawing
• Finishing and protecting the design
• Presentation and display skills

All materials provided.
