ART enthusiasts are being offered the chance to take part in a project to inspire creativity.

Greenfield Arts in Newton Aycliffe is inviting the public to develop their skills and express ideas through drawing and painting on a new course.

The project will last three weeks and develop skills with the help of a professional artist.

All art materials will be included and creative sessions will run from a purpose built studio.

The course is part of a summer programme ran by the arts hub.

It hopes the project will give budding artists the chance to explore and express ideas.

The programme will also see Greenfield Arts host renowned exhibitions with artists in residence and provide a range of activities for adults and young people.

Course sessions will be held from 6pm to 8pm and start on Thursday, May 2, until Thursday, May 16.

The full cost of the course is £30 per person.
