Although we're still looking forward to Christmas, it's not too early to be thinking about the first of next year's demonstrations. 2014 starts for us on Saturday 11th January with an Acrylic session from John Connolly.
John trained as an art teacher at Doncaster and in Drama at Derby University. After teaching both for several years , he became founder member and artistic director of Compact Theatre Company and has acted professionally (under the name Harry Connolly) since 1992. John divides his time between painting, acting and writing (with a bias towards painting since 2003). He has written three plays which have toured in the UK and in the UAE.
John also sings with the Shaydes, previously known as Old Spice. In 2010, he became a full time artist working in his own Ormscliffe Studio in Bolsover.
