Sunday 13th is the watercolour workshop with Phil Biggs, which looks most interesting, but is fully booked. And please note it is Sunday, not the more usual Saturday.

Life Drawing

The following Sunday is month’s life drawing session, and like the watercolour workshop, is the last one of the year.

Zoom Demo

We start our winter demonstrations on Wednesday through the medium of Zoom (at your own home, or place of convenience). Life drawing in charcoal, by Paul Berryman. Watch for the members email with log-in details.

Monet’s Garden follows our Annual General Meeting

This year we will be holding a real, live, in person Annual General Meeting! Not by Zoom, not online – but with real committee members and – hopefully – most of our members!
Reserve the date: Wednesday 20th April. 

Enjoy the promise of immersion in Monet’s Garden after the (mercifully short) important bits.

Our speaker – Dr Anne Anderson of Solent University, will tell us all about ”A Painter’s Paradise: Monet’s Garden at Giverny”.

Click on the ‘event description’ link below for some really delicious words about her talk, together with some of the glorious paintings he made in his garden. Whatever, however you paint, you won’t fail to find some inspiration in Anne’s talk.
