Meetings held on the third Wednesday of each month in the Central Library, West Bromwich.
Facilitator: Janet Linney
The group have visited a number of galleries including the Kate Modern Art Gallery and Jinney Ring Craft Centre where they spent a very enjoyable day looking at modern art and crafts. The visit was made even more special by enjoying a huge piece of homemade sponge cake at the Art Gallery. Visits have also been made to the Botanical Gardens in Birmingham, Walsall Art Gallery, the tudor Oak House in West Bromwich and the Bilston Craft Gallery and Museum. Links to the websites of these galleries can be found at the side of this page, or go to the Links page on this website.
June Davies began running the 'Splash of Colour' Art Group in April 2008. Following a visit to the Wedgwood Visitor Centre, June purchased a number of plates on offer in the shop at 50p each and thought they would be very useful if members of her group painted a plate to their own design. The results were displayed at a monthly meeting of Sandwell U3A and received lots of compliments from other members. June also ran a calligraphy workshop, covered still life in mixed medium and worked with acrylics.
The group now run themselves, with Janet as facilitator, as June has decided to step away from being the group leader. and they are always looking to welcome new members so if you need any further information please use the facility on our Contact Page.
