Members community page

Welcome to your community page. Over the next weeks, this section will steadily improve, so please re-visit from time to time.

This is where you can keep in touch, find out things. Much of the information will also be on Facebook, under the class or classes you attend (not everyone is on Facebook, so please use this website).

If you want news relevant to art, or any culture event, posting here, please email it to me, also any images.

Have also set-up a gallery for each class where your work can be displayed, together with your comment.

Tony, from the Thursday evening class, has certainly got himself organised!

A PROJECT. Given the improving weather through April, perhaps members might like to take on the following project, following David Hockney's example? Now we are all isolating at home, why not use our gardens to work in? I suggest we could start with drawing & sketching, then move on to painting exercises - time to experiment - then do a finished painting or paintings when ready. I have set-up a web-page where all the work, including preparatory drawings, could be displayed for everyone to view.
