BAFA describes itself thus:
Whatever our level of expertise and talent we are always learning.
As Pablo Picasso said "the artist is a receptacle for emotions that come from all over the place; from the sky, from the earth, from a scrap of paper, from a passing shape, from a spider’s web".
So how do you get onto this road of learning?
At Bafa we want to
So if you have not painted for years or the last time you held a paintbrush was when you were nine years old, or you would just like to learn a little about art: BAFA could well be for you. I can testify they are a delightful and welcoming bunch of people: friendships are made and tips on painting are exchanged! (Contact details here)
