In the UK, almost all adults are regular users of the internet (99% of those between 16 and 34 and 89% of those older than 35) and about 95% of them turn to Google when they are looking for something. 
This makes it a really important to any business which uses the internet as part of their marketing strategy. Have you ever wondered how companies get their websites to the top of Page 1 on Google?
You may have come across the term Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) and it’s the application of effective SEO techniques to your website that will help your website move up the Google listings. 
But it’s not just about being at the top of the search results, it’s about having an effective website that your visitors will find easy to navigate and use and about making sure that your business is visible across the internet, in all the places that your customers would expect to find you. 
In this workshop, our coach (Andy Poulton) will be providing you with hints and tips on how you can make your website really work for you, how you can apply SEO in order to move your site higher in the Google search results and then move on to a range of ways that you can use Social media and Video marketing opportunities to promote your business, build awareness, demonstrate credibility and ultimately attract new enquiries and generate more business.

Pencil To Paint: Apr - Jun 2018
Eventbrite.co.uk
18th April - 13th June


“I think that painting today is pure intuition and luck.”
Francis Bacon on Matthew Smith (1909-1992)
For most of us, our relationship with art begins with a line. We take a pencil or a crayon and delineate our idea. In our enthusiasm, we may even attempt to colour it in. In the experience of many, that attempt leads only to disappointment. We know that a painting is more than just a coloured-in drawing, but how do we do it? What exactly is the difference?
This course explores the gulf between drawing and painting and then seeks to provide a bridge between the two disciplines. Beginning with simple pencil studies, we will then develop our work in both charcoal and ink, gaining confidence in our abilities, before embarking on five weeks of painting in bold colour.
This course is open to all-comers and is ideal for beginners or those who wish to take their art in a new direction. 
The theme for this particular 8 week Pencil To Paint course will be abstraction and we will look at how form, gesture and emotion all play their part in successful picture-making, regardless of genre.
Topics will include:
Mark-making
Line, measurement and proportion
Notān
Colour: theory and mixing
Tables and chairs and a roll of newsprint paper are provided. Please bring a drawing board, paper or pad and your preferred drawing media. Materials required for sessions using colour will be discussed nearer the time.
Tea, coffee and biscuits will be available for a small donation.
16:30 - 18:00
Wednesdays:  18, 25 April; 02, 09, 23, 30 May; 06, 13 June (8 x 1.5 hour sessions)
