Workshop with Andrew Geeson


Our first face-to-face workshop since the first lockdown went down a treat!

"My love affair with the Art of Stanley  Spencer"


On the evening of 13th May, we had our Founders Lecture given by Dr James Fox on the topic of “My love of the art of Stanley Spencer”.

This was a fantastic Zoom Lecture brilliantly delivered with fascinating examples of both pictures and photographs of Stanley’s work and his life.

Check your email for the link to the recording of this great event.

I’m sure you will be disappointed if you don’t watch it or even watch it for a second time.

'Colour Theory and Mixing in Acrylics'

Sarah Wimperis Zoom Demo on Thursday 17th September


Zoom is a great way to keep in touch in these very difficult times and although it’s not the same as seeing everyone in person it is the best we can do at the moment.


Sarah was full of enthusiasm and was a tonic, encouraging everyone to get their paints and brushes out, even if it’s only for 10 minutes a day! We had an excellent demo, with 55 members signed in, her subject was "From sketch to a finished picture". Based on her early morning open water swimming experiences!
