Shanklin Season’s Art Class Artists celebrated the completion of their course with an exhibition of work opened by Lake Parish Council Chair Cllr Paul Brading, with friends and family of the artists attending the event.

Cllr Brading said ‘The standard of art on display was outstanding, with fantastic attention to details, a tremendous range of landscapes and portraits, and the exhibition was a credit for all of those involved’.

Project co-ordinator Deborah Speedie said ‘The exhibition was the culmination of months of painstaking work, and we are grateful for the support of all at Shanklin FC for providing such quality facilities and a fantastic setting for our students’.

The course included watercolours, acrylics and oil pastels, as well as providing a social setting for artists of all ages’.

Paul concluded ‘There is a real sense and spirit of community about the exhibition, with Deborah and Brendan bringing a family feel to the group, and I know further Wednesday classes are planned for the near future.
