We will return to review and discuss our photographs to finish at 5pm.

One of the results from our last walk around The Arc Centre.

Last Wednesday, following up from the previous week’s walk around the Arc Centre in Angel, photographer Peter Kyte taught our group to use Photoshop to process their images. These are the results below – of the architectural detail of St James’ Church.

The group’s confidence was really brought out by Peter across the two sessions, and they had a great time observing the local area in a new light, and learning new skills at the same time.

Thank you Peter!

Come along to The Arc Centre Get Together on Wednesdays from 2 – 4pm to join us with other creative activities! Call Activities Manager Ellie Shipman for more information on 0207 281 6018.
