Bella Green - Bright Day in Summer - oil on canvas - 39x45cm

Demand was so great to join our new Art classes being held at Gracefield that two new groups were launched back in February.

These take place on Thursday afternoons from 1 – 3.30pm and on Friday mornings from 10am – 12.30pm.

Irene Rogers comes along to the Thursday afternoon group:

“I have recently joined one of the two new art sessions currently being run for DAGFAS members at Gracefield Art Studios in Dumfries. There are ten of us, all using a wide variety of art mediums including lino-cutting, pastel and charcoal drawing, decoupage, collage, dry-point as well as painting in acrylic, watercolour and inks. I am loving seeing everyone’s work and have learned a lot in just a few short weeks.”

The new classes have proved so popular that we are hoping to role out more in the region wherever there is a demand. So if you would be interested in joining a class in your area and you have a suitable premises in mind, then please get in touch with our treasurer, Gill Glover, at treasurer@dagfas.org.uk and share your ideas.
