Thursday Art Group
The Thursday Art Group of Drawing and Painting meets weekly from 10:00-12:00 at The Rowena Davey Day Centre, Chequers Lane, Dunmow.
Our mixed group comprises both beginners and more experienced artists, and we welcome others joining us. The group decides itself on themes each week which we follow but we are also free to do our own thing.
We help and encourage each other and provide painting tips and advice as required. We have a tutor who comes in monthly to provide additional help and support.
We use a variety of techniques and regularly bring in new ideas. We want the weekly sessions to be both artistically challenging yet enjoyable. We work mainly in watercolour, acrylics or pencils. From time to time we change the materials we use. Usually we work from photos but Still Life and Portraits allow us to paint in situ. at the Centre.
We keep the cost of the sessions to a minimum. If you are interested in joining us please contact Janet Clinton, group leader. You will need to be a member of Dunmow U3A.
Refreshments are available at the Centre.
