Our programme of demonstrations will resume on Friday 28th September with a demonstration by Graham Twyford.
Please note: our portrait Group and Open Art sessions will continue weekly at Bolton le Sands Old Grammar school on Thursdays. Portrait in the mornings 10:00 till 12:00 and Open art in the afternoons 2:00 till 4:00pm. See the programme guide above for full details.
We would like to thank Christina Gannon for her years of tirelessly arranging our demonstrations and workshops and would like to thank Kathy McAdam for volunteering to take over the role.
Members will note from the programme that we no longer hold our fortnightly club nights at Torrisholme as well as our demonstrations. This is because of the poor attendance last season and a decision was made to encourage members to attend our weekly sessions at Bolton-le-Sands Old Grammar School. We have the splendid hall there all day with our Portrait Group in the morning and painting and drawing groups in the afternoon.
Take you pick of either and join in the fun and please try and get along to our demonstrations. We have a great mixture of artists all ready to show off their skills and we want as many of you as possible to show your support. We would also like you to encourage friends and others to come long ad hopefully join the society.
In the main our programme includes:
- Demonstrations and tuition by professional artists.
- Thursday afternoon sessions.
- Tutored workshops by professional artists.
- Lectures by professional artists and art historians.
- Outdoor painting and sketching days in summer.
- Visits to galleries and national collections.
- Public exhibitions for society members to show and sell their work.
The society is both friendly and welcoming, but then don’t just take my word for it – come and join us at one of our regular weekly meetings.
I shall look forward to greeting you.
