CHILDREN who want to get creative have a new artistic guide.
Artist Joan Lewis, 63, of Ince, is the brains behind the glossy notebook which offers easy to follow instructions on a number of art mediums, including drawing and painting with water colours.
Around 200 copies have been printed, which are available from Sunshine House, in Scholes.
Joan, said: “I made some notes to give to the children in the class I teach at the centre, and I left the notes there while I went on holiday and Barbara Nettleton, who runs the centre, organised for it to be made into a book.
“It was based on ideas I had. I was helped by conservation artist David Shepherd, who was coached to use different mediums, and also Brighton artist Trudy Friend. I wanted to show these artists, who meet at Sunshine House, that once they pick up a pencil and make a mark on the paper, they can do anything.”
