Interest Groups

Art

The group meets on the 2nd Monday of the month at 10am

This is a practical Art group and we cover a wide range of subjects, from painting to drawing in a range of media. In the past, for example, we have made out own versions of Turner’s ‘Fighting Temeraire’, explored pen and ink drawings, oils and acrylics, and tried Pastels and charcoal. We also explore figure drawing, making a start with how to draw faces and heads.
This is not a teaching group, although the convener often leads the group by giving demonstrations or by getting members of the group to give a short presentation. The general direction that the group takes is entirely driven by the members, there being no syllabus as such, so anything that you’d like to explore can be covered.

Convener: Julian Smith
