Spring 2019 Art Class
This was an eight week course with artist Helen Garrett that ran from January 2019. During this eight-week course participants Drew on the Ancient Past for inspiration; from rocks and fossils in the earth to Cave Art, Celtic Art and even some Anglo Saxon treasure. They worked on developing foundational drawing skills and experiment with new and exciting materials – including graphite, charcoal, grinding raw earth pigments and painting in gold. With access to some of the artefacts in the Wiltshire Museum collection, this was a unique opportunity to connect with history in a closely profound and imaginative way.
