Gallery’s art workshops

Have your say

The Dovecote Gallery in Misterton, near Doncaster, has launched a range of art workshops run by resident artist Carol Pontin, whose studio is in Low Burnham.

She aims to develop a friendly, supportive environment for beginners or people returning to painting.

The cost of each workshop is £20 which is inclusive of a home-made meal and sweet with tea or coffee at the adjacent Dovecote Café.

Complimentary tea and coffee is served on arrival, with each workshop starting at 2pm and running until 4pm when food is served.

Carol then offers advice on each piece of work and answers questions on the various techniques that have been shared.

Everyone returns home with a finished painting knowing that every stage has been meticulously explained at a pace that is comfortable for all.

Full details of the schedule for 2011 can be downloaded from, which also includes examples of class work produced, or call Carol on 01427 875721.
