“Oh, I wish I could draw …” I look at other people’s art, see they get so much pleasure out of doing it and I envy that. My efforts are feeble. Ah, but help is at hand at St Mark’s on a Thursday morning. Dave and Helena, both brilliant artists in their own right, are very supportive of all attempts by those trying to channel their inner artist. I found it doesn’t matter whether you are a budding Picasso or if you barely know one end of a paintbrush from the other, everyone is welcome to have a go.
I believe in Creator God, God who speaks through our creativity and sets our spirits flying free through our art. It doesn’t matter how good you are, whether the result looks like you’d imagined it or not; it’s the process, the taking part, the giving it a go, which is important.
And it’s sociable. There’s tea, coffee and cake and plenty of folk to chat to: St Mark’s really is the place to be on a Thursday morning from 10.00. Come along and see for yourself.
