Wonderful workshop with Ron Moody

from Bev Dunstan

Saturday 10th September saw us enjoying a workshop in pen and ink with Ron Moody.

Everyone had a marvellous time today.  We tried a different table arrangement that seemed to work well, the room was just the right temperature and the subject and teacher went down a storm!

I was so busy enjoying myself that I totally forgot to take photos during the day, except for our array of works which we produced working along with Ron.

I’m really hoping Ron will come to do another workshop with us very soon. It’ll be very popular, I think!

Drop-in Session next Wednesday

Our drop-in sessions have been continuing through the hot weather, and several doughty artists have turned up each month without fail!

A session in July

These sessions are free for members (only) and entirely unstructured. Just turn up between 11 am and 1 pm, and do whatever you like – artistically speaking.

We do not provide any teaching or subject matter, or even guidance. These are social occasions, though, and if you would like feedback, or wish to discuss something about techniques you are using, there’s bound to be a like-minded person to talk with.

Bring your own refreshments, although tea and coffee-making facilities are available.

Note: these sessions are at the Community Centre on Hursley Road. There is ample car-parking behind the centre itself. The Art Group’s distinctive signage will help you find the way in!

The Drop-in sessions take place on the second Wednesday of each month. For more details, see this page.

Next Saturday 10th September, artist Ron Moody will be taking a workshop for Chandlers Ford Art Group Members. The subject is pen and watercolour painting, which has proved a very popular topic.

Hillier Gardens and Cream Tea

Saturday 21st May 22

It was one of those days at Sir Harold Hillier Gardens when you hope the weather forecast is accurate, having planned a day without a brolly! Large grey clouds trundled across the horizon at regular intervals, but the sun triumphed and provided us with lovely warm spells, just enough to keep the coat off and not shiver. Artists were hidden in crevasses throughout the gardens, and cameras were out in force. Well done to all who ‘got on with it’ and produced a sketchpad or paints.  It takes some confidence to paint ‘au plein air’, but once settled it is such a lovely way to spend a few hours.
