Art We Like – Talking about pictures

 

We are a group of people who share their enjoyment of art. At each meeting we have a couple of presentations on art works from any time or place, which are then discussed by the group. No knowledge of art is necessary, just interest and the pleasure of discovery.

Drawing and Painting with an iPad

This is a friendly and informal group, hosted by 2 amateur enthusiasts.  We explore various painting/drawing apps  on our iPads, using our own choice of subject matter, such as vegetables/fruit/flowers, photographs, pictures, domestic objects etc. resulting in an absorbing and relaxing activity.

Art – Anyone can Draw ?

This class is suitable for those who want to continue their drawing/painting techniques and those who think they can’t draw but would like to try.  It will help you to improve your drawing and observation skills by experimenting with various techniques in a variety of media.  You will start by working through the basic elements – line, tone, form, texture and pattern by experimenting with a variety of media – pencil, chalk, charcoal and conte, pen, ink/wash, soft pastels, oil pastels and water based paints (poster/gouache).

You will now have the skills to create and develop your own ideas in future classes.  Please contact Judith re the list of materials needed and where one can buy them at a reasonable cost.

NB (Covid-19 precautions) the class will be divided and each group will run fortnightly depending on numbers and Covid infection rates.
