Art Mixed Media

Margo Searle recently took over the running of our group from Peter Iles. She is a self taught artist with no training in teaching but has been painting in several different mediums for over 50 years so has plenty of experience and is happy to give tips, hints and encouragement to members of the group.

We are a friendly group of mixed ability; we choose our own subjects to paint and use our medium of choice which we supply ourselves. We meet at the Cotswold Bowls Club every Monday morning at 10am for a couple of hours, a wonderful venue with a large airy room with plenty of windows with natural light and large tables, with access to tea, coffee, refreshments and delicious lunches.

As some of our members have described our meetings:

"Coming to Art gives me a reason to get up on a Monday morning,”; “Two hours of respite from noisy realities of modern life and media.” “Freedom to do what one wants when at Art club with no pressure or set rules.”; “Using creativity to enhance life in general and the never ending learning process of splashing paint around and chatting to like minded friendly people.” “Wonderful escapism of losing oneself in creating images by concentrating the mind between the hand, eye and canvas.” “Using colour spreading it on like butter with a painting knife.” “Having a go at using different mediums and watching the random effects that evolve."

All in all a lovely place to be! – and if you fancy trying your hand, there are still vacancies. Contact Margo Searle(01453 751197, email Art Mixed Media).
