The name John Skinner will be known by many in the Teignmouth area for his unique watercolour paintings as well as his outgoing nature.
Many will also know him as an excellent tutor who holds regular watercolour workshops passing on his skills to many willing students.
The main gallery at TAAG Arts & Community centre will next week be filled with many of the results of his teaching when many of his pupils display their work in an exhibition aptly titled “A Brush with Art”. They may be students but their art will be very worthwhile seeing, having had the stamp of approval from John.
As can be seen from the different styles of painting the members of the group are individuals in their own right, each of them deciding what subject they would like to paint. The Group was formed some four years ago with many new members joining along the way and is for all abilities from beginners to experienced artists.
This is the Group's second Exhibition at TAAG.
