Arts centre presents a series of summer workshops

Rothbury-based Coquetdale Arts Centre is holding a series of classes to promote creativity and help develop peoples’ skills.

The venue, located at the village’s Court Building, is keen to advertise its Saturday sessions, which run throughout summer.

May is a busy month for these types of classes. This weekend, watercolour artist Malcolm Coils holds a session entitled Coastal Scene.

A week later, another watercolour artist, Alan Reed, presents a class called Cityscape.

Saturday, May 24, will feature the visit of oil/acrylic artist Michael Ewart, before Tony Montague, who works with a mix of media, holds a workshop on Saturday, May 31.

The classes are £20 each and run from 10am to 3pm.
