GROUP LEADER: Jill Stacey - contact via the contact form.
Any folk interested in joining this group can contact Sharon Pratt (Ru3a Groups’ Coordinator) directly via 07796931818 or Rutlandu3a.firstname.lastname@example.org with a view to creating a brand new Art Appreciation group.
The art appreciation group is an established group which is friendly and welcoming to new members.
VENUE: At the home of the leader in Braunston Road, Oakham. Parking is available. We are now meeting face to face but restricting numbers to allow social distancing.
DATE AND FREQUENCY: We meet once a month, normally on the second Monday morning of the month between 10am and noon.
DESCRIPTION: The idea is that we are not experts but learn together, agreeing on an artist to research before a meeting. Each member then researches one work of that artist and reports back to the group on the aspects of the work that have interested them. Friendly and informal discussion then takes place. We use a projector and screen to view the works under discussion.
We also visit local galleries and houses and have previously visited Derby and Coventry. Please contact us if you would like be added to our mailing list to be advised of future visits which are open to all u3a members, not just those in the art groups.
For a list of artists discussed at our meetings see the schedule page.
