Celebrate Vera Lynn and paint the bluebirds over the White Cliffs. Arty Class for all ages.

With the sad passing of Vera Lynn, relive one of our previous weekly Arty Classes where professional artist Helga Picknell guided us through painting the White Cliffs of Dover in celebration of VE day. It used a number of mixed media including the use of a candle!

See below the step-by-step video, materials list required as well as some of the paintings we've had sent in to us, from young and old artists alike.
