Bottesford artists help children and adults to find ‘visual voice’ with classes

Two artists have been praised for their art classes for adults and children.

Glenda Gibson and Donna Drouin, both based in Bottesford, started running the classes in the Methodist Church in Bottesford last summer.

Glenda said: “[We] work together to teach and encourage children in their love and exploration of art skills and materials.
