Friday Art Group
The Friday Afternoon Art Group. Friday afternoons 2.30 – 4.30 p.m. in the Tennyson Suite.
We are a small Art Group of mixed abilities who meet regularly to draw and paint for pleasure. Our members work in a variety of media – Watercolour, Pastel, Pencil (Graphite or Colour), Acrylic and Oils (which are not as scary as you might think), but we do draw a line at Sculpture.
The group started years ago by Independent Arts, continued by a professional artist and art tutor (Mark Langdale) until his move to the Isle of Skye. Following his departure we reconstituted ourselves as a self-run, self-help group.
We are a friendly and welcoming Group, and don’t take ourselves too seriously, but are ready to learn and pass on tips and techniques.
We also have tea and biscuits, frequently cake, about half way during the session. We have held the occasional exhibition of the Group’s art work at the Freshwater Library Gallery.
Do come and see us.
We meet every Friday afternoon (2.30-4.30p.m.), just go through the wrought-iron side gate at the back of the Hall car park to the rear side door, and we are upstairs (there is a lift, if required).
And the cost ? Just £3 per session, which pays for the room and sundries.
