Group report

We set up a WhatsApp group and have used this and emails to keep in touch.
In July 2020 we all met in the park (distanced of course) and put together ideas for the next year’s programme which started in September. We were hopeful of meeting in the hall by then! How things have changed. We did manage a few weeks of four at a time meeting weekly at the kind invitation of the Men’s Shed. This provided a chance to paint together on a rota basis, but then that stopped with the November lockdown. However we have worked to the programme from home and put pictures of our efforts on WhatsApp.

January programme subject was hats and umbrellas, here are two examples of our work.

 

 

We can’t wait to meet again but in the meantime we will continue to paint and share.

We hope to make an exhibition of work completed in Lockdown for our contribution to the Open Day.

Group report

We meet every fourth Friday of the month 10.00 to 12.00am, at The Radford Hall. We usually have between 10 and 12 attendees, and there is always room for more. It is always a very relaxed morning, we meet to have fun and experiment with different techniques and approaches. Since Christmas we have done portraits of someone you know, printing with potatoes and other things, and wild animals in any medium.

We are just reaching the end of this year’s programme doing a "sporting action" picture using ink as the medium.

We enjoy learning from each other and having a relaxed morning of painting and chat ! We meet on the fourth Friday morning of the month at Radford Hall. There is usually 8-10 of us, so plenty of room for more.

We have all put ideas together for a varied programme for 2017/2018, which includes trying different techniques, mediums, challenges, to develop our skills rather than produce lots of masterpieces....but we do get some!!
