Come and join Rita and make new firends as you paint in watercolour and other exciting media. Rita will demonstrate, inspire and help you to enjoy your art. This course is suitable for anyone wishing to develop existing skills.
The theme for this term is taken from the current exhibition at the Royal Academy, Painting the Modern Garden: Manet to Matisse, which runs until 20th April 2016. If you are unable to visit the Royal Academy, there is also a live screening of the exhibition at the Phoenix in Leicester on Tuesday 12 April at 7.30pm.
