Exhibition by participants from Vicki Gorman's Art Classes

Regrettably due to the closure of The Core and the Courtyard Gallery within it, we are not yet sure if this exhibition will take place as planned and is therefore suspended.  Once we have more information about when the Covid-19 Regulations might allow us to reopen, we’ll contact the exhibition organisers and agree whether their dates will go ahead or be rescheduled.  We know the planning and hard work that goes into staging an exhibition and we look forward to displaying their work in our Gallery soon.


Vicki Gorman Art Classes present an exhibition showcasing the talents of the Artists who attend Vicki’s classes. The exhibition shows the different themes and mediums that are taught in the lessons, and the wonderful variety of individual styles of the artists.

Vicki teaches adult art classes at different venues including here at the Core. All abilities and ages are welcome. Vicki has 18 years of experience in teaching art to adults and the classes are informative, friendly and inspiring. They combine focussed projects where you can learn new techniques, and individual projects where you develop your own style. Vicki demonstrates techniques at the beginning of class and you can try them out yourself in your chosen medium. The lessons cover different media including watercolours, acrylics, chalk pastels etc. New classes are starting on Fridays at the Core in the spring 2020, as well as the ongoing classes.  If you are interested in joining then contact Vicki on 07940483320 or email You can also follow on facebook- Vicki Gorman Art Classes.  


What people have said about the classes when they were asked what do you enjoy about the lessons:

The group is mixed in both age and ability and has a friendly, supportive and welcoming atmosphere. Vicki’s encouraging manner and talent has enabled us all to exceed our own expectations and produce work in various mediums we had previously thought beyond our capabilities. (Andrew Thursday class)

Encouragement, sharing of ideas and enjoying others work with so much variety.

Very nice group of people, very helpful and encouraging to each other. The art techniques and demonstrations are fantastic, really helpful and well explained.

I have learnt so much over the last 12 months, it’s amazing. Thank you so much for your help and enthusiasm Vicki. I look forward to each class.

I enjoy the learning process, atmosphere and friendships.

I like the mix of instruction and free choice you give us as I think it’s a better way to learn. I enjoy the challenge of each session.

I always get stuck at a certain point in a picture and need help to get past problems. It is good to get out my comfort zone and try new subjects and mediums.

Learning something new every week, feel like painting has become my passion.

To learn about art, experiment with techniques, socialise, inspiration, feeling of progression, it is wonderful.
