This friendly group enjoy working in a variety of media, using the techniques of their own choosing.  The majority prefer to ‘Do their own thing’  which is fine.  As a teacher of Art and Design for 41years, I am available to give hints and advice as and when requested.  
Should you not have an idea to work on, I do at each session provide something to draw or introduce a specific focus. We have drawn still-life arrangements, looked at how to draw an Ellipse and explored the perspective of Doorways and Windows. At our next meeting, by request,  we will look at ways to represent  ( re-present ) reflections on water, and take a look at how artists have achieved particular effects.
Members of the group include regular exhibitors and complete beginners. 
We are able to add one or two new members should you be interested. 
Please contact me by telephone on 01803 329027 or use the link above.

We study individual artists, schools of art and architecture using videos, DVDs and books. Our policy is to cover as wide a range as possible to introduce us to new artists and ideas. The group is well supported with about 20-25 members enjoying the comfort of the lower lounge at St Matthias, however new members are always welcome and should contact me as vacancies do occur.
