April 2022 Events

April 5th 2022 – Corridor Change and Free Painting

Can you collect your pictures that are presently hanging in the corridor tonight, as we need to clear the area for next week?
While members of the committee do the work, other members can enjoy some free painting. It has been suggested we might try an Easter Theme, but the night is informal, so anything goes.
If anybody wants 'D' rings in order to enable your works for next week to be hanged properly, they will be issued this week so you can fit them at your leisure.

April 12th 2022 – Climate Change Project

Please bring in the works you have completed our Planet Despair/Planet Hope Exhibition. This, our most recent major project will be hanged tonight. Let's have as many of the completed works in tonight, in order to make an impact in the corridor.

April 19th – Figure Work and Choose our Next Challenge

Trying to capture movement in figures can be challenging; sports action; dance; acting; work; even sheep dog trials, can all be portrayed. Bring in any source materials you possess that you can work from. There are source photographs available in the art cupboard, if required.

April 26th – Appraisal – Oils and Flow Acrylics

The workshops we held on oils and flow acrylics resulted in some stunning works. Bring in what you did on the night and anything you have produced in those media since then.

Quarterly Challenge – Instead of a separate Quarterly Challenge, we will continue with our Planet Despair/Planet Hope project until 12th April.
A new Quarterly Challenge will be chosen this month (19th April).


March 2022 Events

March 1st 2022 – Appraisal Night

Following our recent Workshop Nights, we are asking everyone to bring along their works from (and based on) those very successful evenings. To remind you, last week we had charcoal and pastel tables and a couple of weeks ago fluid (flow) acrylics and oils. As your oils may not yet be dry, we will try to hold a separate appraisal night for these.

March 8th 2022 – Climate Change Project and Free Painting

Please bring in the works you have completed so far for the Planet Despair/Planet Hope Exhibition. This will enable us to determine how the project is progressing and note any shortfalls.

March 15th – Free Painting

A chance to do your own thing

March 22nd – Half-hour Challenge

Colin Fielding will join us tonight to issue a half-hour challenge. He will demonstrate completing a picture in that time himself and then we will have 30 minutes to do one of our own. Theoretically, we will have time to appraise all the work produced by the end of the evening.

March 29th – Springtime – Painting with a Seasonal Flavour

Think spring – daffodils, tulips, Easter eggs, primroses, Easter bunnies, mad March hares.

Quarterly Challenge – Instead of a separate Quarterly Challenge, we will continue with our Planet Despair/Planet Hope project, aiming to get all the works produced exhibited by the middle of April.
