“It may seem trivial to be worrying about a painting workshop in such dire times, but we feel it has important value in balancing the daily news cycle. We are all trying to keep a sense of normality going in these abnormal times. And regardless of how long it takes to put this crisis behind us we intend still being here, doing our arty thing. So, here’s looking forward to better days in the future and the healing power of art. Keep safe everyone.” – Rod Coyne.
