'Tina's Art' ~ 2018 Exhibition

'Great oaks from little acorns grow' is a 14th century proverb but it still rings true today as it did 800 years ago.

In March 2018 Tina Fortune began an Art Class for adults from the Faythe school community and they have since become known as "The Laugh a Lot Art Class” - a self explanatory name as not only do the ladies enjoy their art but there is also great camaraderie among the group.So much so that the cup of coffee and chat after class sometimes lasts almost as long as the class itself !

Then in September Tina decided to branch out and on Saturday mornings runs a Children's Art Class in the school.

These 'acorns' came together on Saturday 15th December and Storm Diana couldn't even put a damper on the occasion.

This was both groups' first exhibition and judging by the standard of their work and their justifiable pride in it, there is absolutely no doubt that they will continue with Art with many more exhibitions to follow!

Judge for yourselves!!
