Art by the ocean

Reasonably priced art classes are for all ages and abilities. A range of classes and teachers in different mediums and artistic styles. They encourage true creativity unhindered by preconceptions of what is ‘good’ or ‘art’ and welcome everybody to come and give it a go.

Also, each month local business Uncorked Creativity comes into the gallery to hold a fun paint party. Thought you couldn’t paint? Think again! Uncorked Creativity takes you step by step through the process of how to create an amazing painting. It’s a relaxed art lesson with music, food, drinks and friends. No artistic or creative experience is needed and you will come away at the end of the night with your own amazing artwork! Check out the Facebook page for upcoming paint parties.
