At Pinto Art Workshops you will be able to learn to draw and paint, or rediscover and improve your art skills in a friendly environment.
A typical course runs for 10 weeks, once or twice a week for 2/3 hours.
You will receive step by step guidance to help you create your own piece of unique art work of a subject and medium of your choice.
The workshops are for developing and discovering creative skills that you may not know you have.
Creativity improves confidence, boosts self esteem and gives you pride in your achievements.
The benefits of a group workshop means that everyone can learn from each other, sharing tips and techniques, ideas and interests.
Of equal importance is the social side that the courses give by bringing people together in a friendly, safe environment where you can mix with and benefit from each other's company.
This can help with isolation and stress and is an excellent therapy for mental health and wellbeing.
Pinto's main aim is for everyone to enjoy being creative with friends.

"Where are the courses held?"
The courses are held at various community focused venues in Sefton and Liverpool.
Some of Pinto's Venues:
The Reach Men's Centre/The Swan Women's Centre/May Logan Healthy Living Centre/Waterloo Community Centre/Kindred Minds Community Group.
"Can I join a course with no art experience?"
The purpose of Pinto is to make art accessible to all adults 16+ and so, yes you can.
All levels of experience are welcome and you will receive one to one guidance as well as group tuition.
Most students start with very little experience, it is a friendly rather than competitive environment, everyone can work at their pace, on their own subject with their own style.
Our gallery of artwork on here reflects the standard that can be achieved whether you are just starting out or wanting to improve your art skills.
"Do I have to pay and do I need to bring any art materials with me?"
The workshops are fully funded and so there is no fee.
You don't need to bring any materials as a good range is supplied which includes:
Paper/drawing boards/pencils/charcoal/paints/brushes and more...
You are welcome to bring your own materials but please ask about this first for safety reasons.
