Good morning. Spring is here and Easter is on it’s way. Make the most of the sunshine and have a wonderful Easter with Art in the Park’s list of things to make and do. There will be no Things to Make and Do blog post on Easter Monday, but there should be enough here to keep you entertained for the next fortnight!!
There is a smaller number of classes running over Easter at Art in the Park – Monday 2nd and 9th is still wood carving with Bill Hudson – a wonderful way to learn how to create your own objects and sculptures from wood. And Gil Mutch will be running a life drawing class on Saturday 14th of April. Click here to find out more about our courses and book your place.
There are some great exhibitions around London opening this wek. A new exhibition about the brain has just opened at the Wellcome Gallery. Brains explores the inner workings of the brain and what humans have done to the brain throughout history.
