Get creative at the Platform in Morecambe this summer

Tender is the Night by Colette Bain
A Lancaster based artist is inviting you to sharpen your drawing skills and unlock your imagination with new creative writing and drawing classes at the Platform in Morecambe.

Colette Bain has exhibited her art internationally and undertaken work for the Wildlife Trust. She exhibits her work in Arteria in Lancaster and galleries further afield.

The weekly drawing classes begin on Tuesday 2nd July from 10am-12.00 noon and are open to complete beginners as well as anyone who would like the opportunity to develop their drawing skills.

"Drawing is a wonderful way to re-engage with the world and strengthen creativity," enthuses Colette. "I believe that anyone can learn to draw and these classes will be a great chance to prove it."

Colette is passionate about writing, too, and in 2010 completed an MA in Writing for Children gaining a distinction. She is currently editing her first novel, due out this summer.

Creative writing class start on Wednesday 3 July from 10am to 12pm and will provide a supportive environment for people to develop their voice in whichever area of writing they choose. The basics of good writing will be covered, making this class ideal for complete beginners or anyone wanting to refresh their skills.

Both classes cost £8 per session but can be booked in advance in six week blocks at a discounted rate of £7 per session.

All classes take place at The Platform, Station Buildings, Marine Road Central, Morecambe, LA4 4DB.
