Our first quiz evening went off splendidly on Wednesday. Hosted by Bev, with quiz master Jacky, refreshments by Joy and Tessa, and a good time appeared to be had by all.
About 34 people signed up and most came, some extras came which almost balanced out the no-shows, so we had eight teams of about four taking part.
The Dovetail Cafe is a really good venue for this sort of event, as you can see.
The winners were Partly Arty with 48 points (max 66), with Lifers coming second on 45.5 points after a tie-break with Hampshire Hams.
For the record, other teams were Clueless (41.5), Turmoil (39), Gaugin Goers (38.5), Just 3 (36.5) and No 42 (35.5). All very respectable scores.
The quiz had sections on Numbers, Colours, Sport, Geography, Animals and Movies. Just not the sort of questions for each you might expect. All definitely arty (but it helped if you knew what the first Bond movie was!)
And afterwards Roy said ‘we must do this again.’
I think our quiz compiler had better start looking for new questions now. 🙂
Sorry about that, but we are already seven days into March. Apologies for the delay in reminding you what’s on!
On Wednesday, it’s our monthly Drop-in Session to help you get on with your own project in appreciative company. Details here, and remember it’s at the Community Large Hall on Hursley Road, not the Methodist Centre.
Saturday 11th it is a palette knife landscape or seascape workshop with Stephen Foster. This was so popular that we have arranged a second one, in May. No, it’s not an aberration of the Calendar.
All the places for the workshops for this year have now been allocated. If you haven’t had confirmation of your successes and waitlist places, please contact Roy. And don’t forget to pay. You should have had all the details in an email around 22nd Feb.
Sunday 19th March we have our monthly Life Drawing workshop in the Church Hall. Wrap up well as the priority for the limited heating is our poor model! Life drawing workshops were also booked last month, check your email for around 22nd if you don’t recall getting one. There are a few spaces left for both March and April (16th).
Our Quiz Night!
Wednesday 22nd brings us a Quiz Night hosted by Bev and led by Jacky. Tea and coffee etc in the interval. And… there may be prizes! Jacky says this is not a test of how much you know about art. Hopefully you may learn a thing or two (she has, in setting the questions) but the main thing is to have a fun evening. Laughter, bafflement, and a few groans, probably!
The Spring Tabletop Exhibition
We are preparing a print run of flyers for you to give to your friends, neighbours, and anyone else willing to spread the world.
Thank you Sue Bowery for letting us use her lovely picture.
Please let Gill know how many flyers you think you could use asap. The poster can also be downloaded here for those who would like to spread it around their social media. If you can do that with a banner style on a webpage, that’s here.
If you are not a member and wish to take part in workshops and other active art, then why not invest a very small amount of money in joining us? Contact Gill (cfagmemsec at gmail dot com) for details.
