DID YOU KNOW..... THAT AT ARTYCAT WE RUN ART, CRAFT AND YARN DROP-IN SESSIONS FOR ADULTS ? 

Our Watercolour Wednesday is a FREE drop-in session that runs every week through the summer and starts at 1:30pm upstairs at Artycat (104 Rochester High Street).  Come along and join in - just bring your colours & latest projects and socialise.  Pick up tips & share advice with like-minded people over a water pot. Whether you have only just started, or are simply curious to try, or maybe you have been a practising water-colourist for years...everyone is welcome, in fact, why not bring a friend along too?? 

We will be introducing loyalty discounts for people that attend these drop-ins regularly, along with special offers, samples of paints and brushes to try - surely it's worth popping in?! 

Take a look at our events page for further information and KEEP checking because although some have stopped for August, they will all be back and larger than life in September.

We are also introducing an 'Art'er-school Club for children (did you get it!!?) and running a couple of sessions later in August so watch this space for further information.
