Wolverhampton Art Gallery is hosting a free drawing taster session on Wednesday 24 February from 1.30pm to 3pm.

Open to everyone aged 50 and over, it is part of the new This Way Up art programme run by Creative Health which invites people to take time out for themselves and have a go at something new.

Under the guidance and encouragement of artist Jim Morris, the session is for anyone interested in drawing, from the complete beginner to those with experience.

Places are limited and so people are urged to book in advance by emailing katy@creativehealthcic.co.uk to avoid disappointment.

This Way Up will stage a number of practical, hands on art sessions inspired by Wolverhampton Art Gallery's extensive collections which will be of interest to both complete beginners and those with some experience.

Katy Sadler from Creative Health said: "All the sessions will be run by professional artists and offer people the chance to try something new, meet other people and take time out for themselves."

Councillor John Reynolds, the City of Wolverhampton Council's Cabinet Member for City Economy, said: "I'm delighted that our fantastic city centre art gallery is playing host to the This Way Up programme and giving people the chance to explore their creative side."
