Drawing and Painting for Fun
Convenor: Jane tel 01434 634767".
We meet every Tuesday morning, except the first Tuesday of the month, between 10am - 12 noon in the larger upstairs room at Hexham Trinity Methodist Church, Beaumont Street, Hexham. NE46 3LS.
This group tries all kinds of different art work - acrylic, watercolour, pastel, pen and ink, pencil, collage etc. Each term we collectively choose fortnightly topics in alternative media. The emphasis is on exploring and playing with different aspects. Sometimes people find a new medium that they really love. If members go on courses they often bring back useful ideas and tips.
It’s a very friendly and supportive group and any criticism is always constructive.
We generally have two full terms indoors at Trinity: autumn and spring. In the second half of the summer term we usually go ‘en plein air’ choosing different local venues or at members’ homes and gardens. Sometimes we will visit a gallery or exhibition together.
The main aim is to enjoy art and have fun.
Current membership is 13. Membership is limited by room- size and we have had to set our limit at 14.
