Nice and bright again this morning, hope it lasts through the day this time. My gardens greening up nicely, with a second flash of daffodils adding bright spots of colour, although the slugs seem to be enjoying them almost as much as I am.
This week is Life Drawing, with two models for you to draw/paint. Do remember your easels as there won’t be many tables put out. As usual we’ll start wqith some short poses then move on to longer sessions to give the models time to settle in.
PLEASE DON’T FORGET WE HAVE THE BRING & BUY NEXT WEEK (22ND APRIL), NAME AND PRICE YOUR ARTICLES FOR SALE, BRING MONEY TO BUY AND SOME CHANGE.
Storage space needed
I was contacted at the weekend by a member of the Alfriston Art Club. They bought our display boards some years ago and have had them stored in a local garage, but they now need to find alternative storage. Can anyone help? The boards are 6ft and 8ft long, 22 in all plus 7ft high stands so quite big to store. They are prepared to pay rent, currently £150 per year and we could use them ourselves – for a hire charge. I would offer to house them myself but I’m sure you all know by now that my garage(s) are FULL! Let me know if you have any ideas.
Alfriston club are also running a workshop on Saturday April 23rd and there are some spaces available. The subject is Acrylic paint and ink. With artist Sue Hestletine. The cost is £20 for the day (bring a plate of food to share). If anyone is interested ring me.
I have some sad news too about one of our older members, Christine Kitchen passed away at the end of March. She was a member who really enjoyed the life sessions and tried never to miss them. Some of you may also remember her from Kate Thornburrow’s life sessions on a Saturday at the WI hall. If anyone would like to attend the funeral I have details. I have sent a condolence card to her daughter on behalf of the club.
I also rang Bill Brinkley this morning as we haven’t seen him for the last couple of months. He is not well still and I don’t think will be attending meetings for some time yet. So sad, as he was really enjoying being part of the club.
