Tell us about your painting holidays
This week ( the 12th) is your opportunity to tell us about your experiences of painting holidays. Have you been on any, were they worthwhile, and the cost was it worth the money? Nothing structured in the session just share your experiences with the rest of us. There’s no theme to the session so bring your work with you.
19th January Demo
The following week the (19th) we have a demonstration by Stephen Cheeseman on using Oil Pastels. I’m really looking forward to this demo as, like many of us, I have a set of oil pastels (or to be honest more than one set) which I really don’t know how to use. Do come along and bring friends as well to hear this talk (non-members £2)
New pictures at the View
Well attended coffee morning last Monday, and Jeremy & I got to hang the new pictures in the entrance hall of The View. Not as many pictures offered this month but they still make a good sho.
AGM coming soon
As we’re coming up to AGM time (Feb 2nd.) do start to think about putting yourself forward for the committee for the coming year. Not an onerous task and you’d be very welcome to come and share the decision made for the smooth running of the club.
One more reminder – the ‘January challenge’ theme is ‘ A Beetles Song Title’ (hundreds of titles to choose from) Judging at the AGM on 2nd Feb.
December 15th saw our annual bit of pre-xmas fun at the Downs Centre with soft drinks, nibbles and some festive activities. This proved again like last year to be a lovely opportunity to mingle and chat with friends as well as try an arty quiz for people to complete in groups.
Scribbles and Graffiti
Apart from the quiz sessions, two table were set up with big sheets of paper titled ’What’s in the garden?’and ‘What’s on the tree?’ Lots of members had a go and contributed to the completed pictures which you can see below... good fun but the resulting images may be not as crazy as last year.
