Art / Painting

Art is relaxing, enjoyable, and actually better in company. FIRS run “Self Help” groups where every member shares advice and useful experience- but there is no requirement to listen or act on the advice. This promotes a cosy environment.

You need no experience at all to start, and the leader will advise on a small kit of paper, pencils and brushes to get you going. Give them a call, and join one of the finest recreations going.

Equipment needed for session

Your own paintng/art equipment, for example art boards, paint, brushes and desk easels. For more information on equipment contact the leader of this session shown on our timetable pages.
