Working Art

New Year – New work group? Old group wanting new ideas? Let us offer a creative solution!

If you are looking for a fun way to get the group working together, why not organise  a Working Art experience and get those creative juices flowing?

We can bring the material to you at work or you can bring your group to Finite Gallery. Either way you can enjoy a fun session to create an artwork, or complete creative challenges designed to stimulate the creative ‘Right Side’ of the brain.

Give Leslie a call to discuss your requirements and find out more about the programme.

Doggy Drawing Day Success!

Doggy Drawing Day Success!

The Doggy Drawing Day proved to be a great success with artists of all ages taking advantage of the opportunity to draw from the 4-legged life models. The gallery was packed, and there were so many wonderful drawings! And the models behaved beautifully too!

Hunter Animal Rescue benefited from the generous donations of food, toys and cash.

Hopefully we can do it again one day!
