In 2008, Iain Gowdie (former Head Teacher of Art at Oban High School) conducted the last of his ten week painting classes in Seil Island Hall. These classes had the format of demonstrations and workshops, and were enthusiastically attended by local amateur artists and beginners.
Mary Blackstock was then approached to continue a weekly painting class, so that those who were keen to continue with their painting could meet each week, and also be guided in the use of several painting media.
The class proved to be very successful and continues to meet in the small hall each Thursday from 2-4 pm from October until May. New members are most welcome. Please phone 01852 300347 for further information.
