Here’s the next big thing you need to know about! It is my pleasure to introduce Marti Carroll. Marti has been attending the Art Metro for some time now, and over the years has generated a significant portfolio of art work. At the suggestion of her tutor, Marti has made the courageous decision to host her first exhibition! On the evening of Saturday, the 3rd of November you are invited to attend her opening night – from 6:30pm to 8:30 PM. Be among the first to view her work, and take advantage of a 10% discount on the price of any purchases made that night. Her work will then continue to grace the walls of the Art Metro for the remainder of the month. I have attached some photos to give you an idea of her style and skill. Please take a moment to enjoy these, and then hopefully we’ll see you here on the third. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me – 03 33544438 Simon The Admin Guy 😊 ... See MoreSee Less
Unusually, we have had a few inquiries regarding weekend classes lately, and I have a tutor willing to work then too. However, I still need a few more people to make the weekend class a possibility. To that end, I am offering a $50 discount to the first 8 people who sign up for the weekend session which will be Sunday afternoon from 1pm to 3pm. That makes the term $219 instead of the usual $269 (not including gear)
Don't hesitate to get in touch if this sounds like a great way to spend an afternoon! The class will be tutored by...

Update: Need to mention that this class will be for adults and children; Adults learning with their children, not children by themselves though 🙂 ... See MoreSee Less
