First two sessions of the Summer Programme!

Saturday 8th April Interiors Workshop with Max Hale

Over twenty members had a great day with Max Hale and his one day workshop on 'Painting Interiors'. He gave us a short demo, with lots of advice and suggestions, and set us off drawing some thumbnail sketches showing our lights and darks - and then we started! He spent time with everyone, and had useful and positive things to say to all of us as we painted, and finished his day with a very thorough crit!

All Day Portrait Workshop on 24th January 2017

Jacky Cowdrey presented a fantastic portrait workshop this week, with lots of information about how to start, what to look for, tips and information about the anatomy of the head to help get us all started! Two models were staged for 30 members to work from, and a really great day for our hardworking members!
