Creative Classes in Williamson Park

John Freeman
If you are looking to become more creative in the New Year, why not join artist Janet Mary Robinson for her weekly classes at Williamson Park, Lancaster.

The courses are perfect for beginners and experienced artists. They start on Wednesday 15th January and take place every week costing £10 per session.

Art in the Park is a course that explores the art of drawing and painting plants, animals and the beautiful landscape in and around the park. This friendly and supportive class is ideal for those with a love of nature.

The classes cover a variety of techniques from life sketching to detailed botanical studies, and are held out and about in the park whenever possible.

The class is taught by Janet Mary Robinson who is an experienced artist, natural history illustrator and art tutor. You can visit her website at

A student who attended the course, said: "I have never drawn or painted anything in my life before. I thought art just wasn't for me, that I wasn't artistic. After only 3 classes I feel really confident. Janet Robinson is a very good, encouraging teacher. I'm so pleased I joined."

The classes run every Wednesday morning from 10.30am-12.30pm and cost £10 per session. If you wish to attend the course, you should contact Janet in advance by email to or by telephoning 07786 868783.
