Busy, busy in April

April kicks off with our monthly workshop, the first of a new membership year. We welcome Ali Lindley back to the Community Hall in Hursley Road for a City Scape in watercolour. Fortunately Ali is no April fool.

With Easter upon us, our Drop-in session is on Wednesday 12th.

That is speedily followed by our Life Drawing session on Sunday 16 April at the Methodist Church Hall. Let’s hope the weather has warmed up a little by then.

A reminder that by this part of the month you should be well advanced with your prep for the Spring Exhibition – clean and well presented artworks, all ready to hang, and no last-minute panics!

But before the exhibition, we have our Annual General Meeting, at the Dovetail Cafe, on 26th April. We welcome back Dr Anne Anderson, who gave such a fascinating talk on Monet last year. This year it’s the wondrous Joseph Sorolla, whose work you probably know even if you couldn’t place his name!

And we wrap up April with the Spring Exhibition over the last weekend, at the Dovetail Centre.

But that’s not all, since by now you should have more or less completed your self-portrait on a postcard for the event in May. And you should also be looking out your plein air painting kit and praying to the weather gods for our first cream tea date in May.

Happy Easter!
