They will then turn their attention to preventative health care by learning how to cook a range of healthy meals and treats.

Taking Flight - Drawing, painting and printing landscape and birds in flight
Acclaimed artist, Sara Dudman RWA, leads this inspiring Art course focusing on the explosive energy of birds in flight and the patterns and shapes these wonderful creatures create as they wheel and whirl in the sky.
Have you ever been given a set of new paints and, although you’re excited, you’re not quite sure how to use them properly or how to use the different types of brushes? This course is designed to teach you how to paint with acrylics, understand how colours and marks can be expressive as well as making an image. By the end of the course, you will have created your own canvas painting, a series of outdoor paint sketches and a group 3D collaborative print. You will be more confident to paint, understanding better how to mix, apply and layer paint and use different types of brushes and tools for different purposes.
