Another great day spent in the company of some excellent young artists who have been in pursuit of inspiring cat and dog subjects. We enjoyed the animal displays at the museum and then went in search of depictions of dogs and cats in ancient Celtic carvings and Egyptian tomb artifacts. Yesterday we had a visit in the studio from Gypsy and Stella, two delightful kittens who, having explored their surroundings, settled into a large box to allow the artists to make their portraits. The course finishes tomorrow with some visiting dog models and an afternoon painting - without brushes... Next course will be in July: see Children's Classes.
