About this Event

Join in with this mindful winter-themed art session where you will have the freedom and support to unwind and to get creative in a series of guided drawing activities with artist Pui Lee.

This session, add that extra special personal touch to your greeting cards and presents this year with a lovely drawing by you!

As a warm-up exercise, you will get the opportunity to practice mark-making, before turning a simple scribble into something beautiful using line, colour and creativity! Then get inspired by this winter season’s festive celebrations for the main activity, where Pui Lee will show you step-by step how to draw some presents. She will then show you how to complete your picture by either adding tone and/or colour using the drawing tools and/or using collage possibilities.

Art is always great for relaxation, reduction of stress and above all, is good fun! This workshop is well suited for those not so confident with drawing, aiming to help get you started with some creative ideas and techniques to try out. You will end up with some drawings that you can continue with at your own leisure if you don’t finish within the session itself.
