Danny Holmes-Adams is a working artist who visits Pilton Arts on the first Friday each month to take a class. Danny will commence the session with a talk and demonstration on the subject of the day. Previous talks have been advice on painting - for example portraits, composition, landscape, water etc. The tutorial is followed by individual mentoring. The cost is 10 for the day.

On the second Monday in the month a morning session is led by one of the members who has a particular skill they wish to demonstrate. There is no cost to these voluntary classes unless special materials are required.


In addition we have instituted project days where a member defines a particular project subject and leads the day. Apart from any materials cost these project days are free and take place on a Monday.
