COMING SOON TO POCKLINGTON ARTS CENTRE
Lee Boxall Arts Workshop (Speedwork and capturing an image)
Monday 6th January at 7.15pm 7.15pm
These art workshops are for all levels of ability and will explore the process of creating and what I use to inspire my art. I believe that there are no mistakes in art, only stepping stones. I hope that you can enjoy this process with me alongside my exhibition at the Arts Centre.
Thursday 21st November - Saturday 11th January
York based artist Lee Boxall is self taught and sees this as an advantage. His inspirational exhibition will explore 'the spirit of people and place' and will focus on North Yorkshire. Lee says "I use art to question, understand and to capture. I deliberately jump around both in medium and in subject and I believe this helps to keep my art real, current and candid. I hope my art moves and inspires those that see it."
