Whitehall Art Group

Kind Words of support for the CDETB Community Education Provision.

The Whitehall Art Group is most grateful for the work done on its behalf during Covid. We, as you know, were supplied with a tutor via Zoom and it worked very well. It was back to the very basics of drawing and seeing and appreciating the work done by successful artists. It kept most of the group together for the duration and all participated each week and worked at their homework. We are hoping to get back to our old routine come September. Again on behalf of the whole group, my thanks to all at CDETB for their work and support, not only keeping our skills up but keeping our morale up during lock-down.
Best wishes to everyone at CDETB.
