New Welsh Academy of Art Launch

A wonderful evening was had by all at Gliffaes Country House Hotel, Crickhowell, Powys joining Lucy Corbett to launch the new Welsh Academy of Art.

The WAA provides residents and visitors with the unique opportunity to learn the classical methods of drawing and painting. This school is open to anyone with a passion to learn and one of its kind in Wales. Enjoyment in the practise of drawing & painting and a commitment to learn are the only requirements needed to join the course. The aim of this Academy is to provide a platform from which the individual artist can develop. Courses include cast, still life, figure, portrait drawing and painting and also landscape painting. For more infomation visit their website
