Savooni in Beer Road will feature exhibitions, art classes and community projects as well as offering artworks for sale

A new art space has opened its doors Seaton.

Created by artist Rich Webster, Savooni, in Beer Road, has launched with an exhibition of work from established and up-and-coming artists which will run until December 9.

Mr Webster says his aim is to create a working space for exhibitions, art classes, community projects as well as offering artworks for sale.

He will be running various drawing sessions for different groups, open to all ages and abilities.

The first classes have just started and include “All the young Dudes Drawing” - a weekly term time class from 3.30pm to 5pm Fridays for Y5 and Y6 students seeking extra tuition in drawing; “Absolute Beginners” class on Tuesdays, 12 noon to 2pm or Wednesday from 6pm to 8pm, a six weekly two hour session focusing on progression from still life drawing to drawing the human form.

There will also be an “Absolute Beginners Course”, initial taster sessions in drawing for those who have never done any drawing which will be held periodically.

Previously a lecturer in life drawing at the University of Cumbria and with an MA in Fine Art, Mr Webster has, for the past two years, been a part of the Jubilee Artists Group and one of the artists in residence at the summer Art@Jubilee art events organised by Seaton Town Development Team.
