Drawing and Painting for Fun
Convenor: Jane tel 01434 634767".
We meet every Tuesday morning, except the first Tuesday of the month, 10.00 a.m - 12 noon, in the community room downstairs at Hexham Trinity Methodist Church, Beaumont Street, Hexham, NE46 3LS.
This group tries all kinds of different artwork - acrylic, water colour, pastel, pen and ink, pencil etc. Members take it in turns each month to suggest a topic or medium. For instance last October we chose the theme of autumn colours. Another time we might set up a still life. The emphasis is on exploring and playing around. Sometimes people find a medium they really love. It is a very friendly group and any criticism is always constructive. If people go on courses they often bring back useful ideas and tips.
In the summer months we like to go outside sketching. Last summer we went in the Sele park and to some members’ gardens. We also had a day trip to Talkin Tarn. In May we visited the Spanish Civil War Artists exhibition at the Laing.
We have taken part in exhibitions and members have sold their work.
We have 9 members at present and would like more. Come along to a free Taster session - you will be most welcome.
