Group Leader: Malcolm Hall
This session will be an exploration of visual art forms for members who wish to broaden their knowledge and experience of this subject area. It will include a brief study of art history and a more detailed exposition of the elements, media, methods and thought processes involved to produce finished artwork.
Each monthly session is devoted to a particular subject, style, technique or medium, using local practitioners where possible and will include a critique of its best known exponents. For some sessions there will be opportunities to engage with the creative process, working with the session leader. Rest assured, no previous experience is necessary.
Visits to galleries and other related venues will be offered from time to time as additional enhancements.
The basic cost will be to cover the room and tea and biscuits only, but there may be an additional fund of around £2 per session or less to cover materials for those who wish to try their hand at the topic of discussion and "have a go".

Art Appreciation and Coronavirus.
The next session of Art Appreciation is due to be 10.00am 'til 12.00 on Monday 20th April. As the current isolation period is likely to continue beyond then, we are planning an on-line session at that time. Members will be invited to link up to a live session to be able to view images of the topic, receive a commentary from the presenter and to contribute comments themselves which will be viewed by all. I do recommend a computer, laptop or tablet is used (a phone will be just too small a screen)
If you are interested in participating, simply inform me, Malcolm by email to email@example.com. Before the session starts you will receive an email similar to the attached image. All you need do is click on the blue box marked open in sheets in order to go to the presentation, which you should do just before 10.00am on 20th April. Please note the attachment itself will not work, it is merely to show you what to look for. You will need to receive an email from me with the link.
This system will be using google technology and is perfectly safe.
