Watercolour Demonstration by Julia Duerden to link with her exhibition ‘Imaginarium and Other Stories’
NEXT Creativity Awakening Seminar to take place at Chester Art Centre on 21 February between 6:30 PM and 8 PM (onwards). For those who couldn’t attend the previous ones there is still an opportunity to get creative ! 🙂
Theme of the night: Overcoming FEARS (of rejection, failure, reproach).
This time we will focus on fears, insecurities and uncertainties.
‘Why do you want to paint? Why are you spending all this money on crafting materials? Have you got nothing else to do?’
The answer is very simple: because it makes us happy! There is nothing wrong with wanting to make stuff, being creative and trying different things. Unfortunately, so many of us are too scared of not being good enough, not finding appreciation or feeling we would have to ‘justify’ our desires to others around us.
Stop feeling guilty and sacred. Embrace your creativity – whether you are secretly writing poems (and then hiding them), or would like to take on acting/painting/photography/knitting/wood carving (or ANYTHING creative!).
Join us for an informal seminar based on a chapter from my course, meet like-minded people with the same difficulties and find the ways to change the things you want to change.
We DO have SOLUTIONS! 🙂
Looking forward to seeing you there!

Artist David L Scholes left school at 16 and became a Carpenter. In 2012, some twenty seven years after leaving school, his wife bought him some paint and canvas from a local art shop and from then on David began to paint. He has sold prints of his work globally and exhibited in the UK and Europe, which has merited interviews and praise alike with international art publications.
David is going to exhibit his Abstract and the Heart collection in Chester for 1 week only – do not miss the preview on the 25th of August!
Come along and bring your friends to meet David and see his incredible art! A nice glass of wine and great arty company guaranteed!
“During our lives we will experience a moment or situation when emotion takes over, showing our vulnerability or strength. These paintings portray joy, grief, fortitude, anxiety, fear and love on a level where the protagonist visibly reminds us that:- sometimes we wear our hearts on our sleeves”— David L Scholes
“He reaches the audience with his messages without using imposing or dramatic artworks, which is common for today’s society, instead he relies purely on the reactions of others to objectify his artwork”— Charlotte Tiebosch

Join us for some beautiful art themed around Chester and Cheshire as well as a few very unusual and funny additions to the exhibition by Carl Longmate!
Carl is a prolific Painter; whose work reflects a positive and optimistic view of life.
Starting as a young finished Artist in Advertising, Carl quickly learned to produce creative work with energy. Preferring to work from life now, Carl says:
“I like to experience my surroundings and absorb the atmosphere, be it town, or country. Painting outside suits me!
I believe in commitment to art, and that can means experiencing some discomfort,
I rarely plan, or even have time to fully mix colour, I just get on with it!”
Introduced to the Scottish Colourist’s when working at the Glasgow School of Art, Carl was definitely influenced. His work having a hyper colour quality, reminiscent of that style.
Carl is a published painter and has been featured in Cheshire Life Magazine, Pure Magazine, and Derbyshire’s award winning Arts Beat.Carl was also featured in Vernon Building societies Charity Calendar.
He is represented by several Galleries, and has won awards including The Colourfield Gallery Award, and Department of Trade and Industry best business award.
