As the weeks slip by towards Christmas and the end of the year, it’s getting harder to remember what we did last week. I know we had a really full turnout of members and it was good to see some old friends coming in to paint. Most people were ’doing their own thing’ with a few Christmas cards appearing plus some really interesting experimental work. Don’t forget to take a wander around during the sessions to see what others are doing (and perhaps pick up some ideas). I do still have one set of the watercolour discs still available if anyone wants them – only £3 & great fun to use or give as a present.
By the way – an early reminder – I will not be sending (or handing ) out Christmas Cards again this year, I only send a few now to people I don’t see through the year just to keep in touch, so for those I see more often please don’t be disappointed if you don’t get one from me.
Life drawing session this Friday
Friday’s meeting is a Life drawing session. As this is always a popular item on the programme which lots of you make the effort to take part in, please come with drawing boards and easels as we are usually very tight on space and table space is in short supply. Hopefully we will have 2 models and we will organise both short and long poses again. (For those not wanting to draw the models, do feel free to use the tables around the edge of the hall.)
Don't miss the Christmas shows
There are lots of exhibitions and Christmas shows around from now on.
At The Crypt the Annual Christmas Arts and Crafts show is on from 20th to 29th November – a magical show of Christmas goodies.
Seaford Baptist Church Hall for an Arts, Crafts and Hobbies Event - 10.00a.m. -5.00p.m. - Saturday, 21st November in aid of Waves Charity
The Eastbourne Group at the Birley Centre, Eastbourne (next door to Towner gallery). Open weekends only 10am - 4pm.
All these shows have some of our own members involved – please do support our friends and perhaps find some great Christmas ideas at the same time. ...Well I’m fed up with the rain and having to have the lights on at 2.45 so I think it’s time for another cup of tea ...See you all on Friday. Anne
