Gifts for art lovers and budding artists …

Art is a very personal thing but if the one you love, loves art, there are gifts you can get them that take some of the stress away.

If they would like to try their hand at painting, how about a workshop with Sip & Paint, these start at just 20 euro and are guided sessions whereby Victori, the tutor, takes budding artists step-by-step through the process to paint a specific picture. Workshops are held either outside, in the studio in San Gwann or online. Follow the facebook page to stay updated with the variety of classes available or to purchase vouchers.

Once they have the bug, why not get them a set of fine art materials, including paints, brushes, pencils, palette and more, all in a quality wooden box. Available in Oils, Acrylic and Watercolour. Boxes can be put together to meet your budget. Prices start from € 100. Get it from Vee Gee Bee Art Bellavista Str, San Gwann or online
