The ABC's of Painting
One of the things we love most about Art Metro is when someone new asks “Would I be good enough to come for classes here?”
We love that, despite being nervous, someone has decided to take a risk and do something new. These people become our ambassadors, as they discover they can actually paint and then share this excitement with their friends and family!
Quite a few years back, we decided to embrace and encourage risk taking by creating ‘Absolute Beginner’s’ Classes. These art classes are specifically for people who want to give it a go, with a group of like minded people. The classes provide an easy step by step painting structure which has been the hallmark of the Art Metro teaching programme for the last decade or so, and has enabled hundred’s of Cantabrians to develop new creativity in their lives.
Due to the popularity and success of this programme, many of the students who joined originally have stayed to continue developing their talent. The structure of the classes continues to evolve and currently consists of complete beginners (enrolling each term) plus some who have been here for some time and have become ‘accomplished artists’.
Remember, everyone has to start somewhere and even our accomplished artists were beginners at some stage.
