Art Class @ Little Willows 29th November 2011

I held a taster art class in November which was very successful. Thank you to the seven people who joined the class. It was a beginners class on how to use brushes and basic painting techniques. More was achieved than expected. Most of you wanted to continue and do another class. I am Planning to do the next class in the new year.  This class may involve an easy landscape cottage garden project, mixing colours etc. All the techniques will be taught at a beginners level.

We are still deciding on dates for the next classes, they may be on the third Tuesday of every month next year starting in February, times being from 10am till 1pm. I will keep you updated on this. You are welcome to leave your comments below as to which dates you prefer or let me know what you thought about the first class. Thanks again for joining the class and also to Little Willows for the venue and organisation of the classes.

The next exhibition will be at the Southlands Art Centre. Remember you can check the calender on to find out the details for classes and exhibitions.

Art classes 4 Artlovers

The art class went really well yesterday, thanks to all those who came along, rain or shine!  Whilst teaching yesterday I was reminded of an art class that I would like to share with you.

 This class was taught with the idea of painting landscapes in watercolour. 

I thought the pebbles added an interesting texture and colour to the paintings.

The results are always wonderful and we really enjoy a good chin wag when we are painting. 

Occasionally we will take the project outside, unfortunately we have been unable to do this on the last class as the weather wasn't all that good.  But we always have a hot drink and biscuits to keep us going.

Thanks to everyone for such lovely classes. See you at the next class. New artlovers welcome!

Village Cafe Hanging!

Christine and Joyce were hanging their paintings today at the Village Cafe.

So you can now go along and have a look at the art while you have some cake and tea.

The Cafe often displays paintings by different artists, so this is quite a nice place to have a cuppa if you are interested in art.  You can also purchase a painting if you really feel like treating yourself.

The paintings will be displayed until the 1st September.
