Something to chew on:

We would appreciate if you can take care of your RSVP's and manage them actively. There will be enough info in the meetup details to know what to expect. To RSVP Yes for a meetup and not attend the event will result in a no-show next to your name. We use this to see which members are dependable when it comes to booking venues. Those who manage their profiles will get preference.

If you wish to work with Oil Paint, Acrylic, Pastel, Color Pencil or Graphite Pencil, you can expect to find all tools and materials supplied for your use during these sessions. You would have to bring along any other mediums/tools you may wish to work with. If you prefer to wear an apron, you may of course bring along one :) Payment of R220 per person per class.
