Women Into Visual Arts workshops pioneered in September 2023, starting with 4 weeks workshops.
The women Into Visual Arts (WIVA) classes are run in two sessions , The Art workshops are in the morning, they teach various techniques and a staged approach through to an end product after 4-6weeks. The sessions are very relaxed; it’s a very cathartic way to learn and express feelings and emotions.
The afternoon is a joined-up business enterprise session to advise participants how valuable their creativity as a women can be, particularly when they transfer their experiences onto canvas and through visual art AND that it has a commercial value if they want to sell their artwork – the sessions wrap around the business of developing a product, the process and how to market their work.
The art is displayed at an exhibition and all proceeds of sale go to the female artists.
WIVA Sessions run weekly Thursdays 9:30am- 3:30pm.
______Classes are FREE, with refreshments included._________________________
