Art lessons are ongoing in the Doris Robbins room at the Howick Library, on Tuesday afternoons from 2pm-4pm. These lessons are free of charge and anyone with an interest in art is welcome to join in. A HARTS member is in attendance to help and inspire budding artists. There is no charge.

If anyone would like a course on any particular aspect of art, for example, portraiture, perspective, still life, etc, then this can be arranged, the society says.
