FREE art lessons are being run at The Lodge arts centre in Victoria Park, Landport, this week.

Lessons will run daily until Friday from midday to 2pm and includes the use of art materials. The focus will be on painting with acrylics on canvas to reproduce past scenes of the park from Victorian times.

Mark Lewis, from The Lodge, said: ‘If you want to take part in the canvas-painting workshop you can book in and bring your own materials or just turn up on the day.’

For more information call Mr Lewis on (023) 9287 0880 or 07787 798 341.
