ART EXTRA  - meetings have started again  on the second Tuesday of the month at Calmore Community Centre from 2-4pm. The next meeting is on 14th December. Book places with Claire.   

ADVENTUROUS ARTISTS SKETCHING GROUP. This is now working well. The meetings are on the second Wednesday of the month. The last was an outing to Lepe Country Park with a chat in the cafe afterwards.


This is a new group starting on the third Monday of the month and held via Messenger Rooms ( so you can stay at home in the warm) Each month we will produce art works on a given subject and then show our results and discuss them and anything else vaguely art related such as other work we've done, problems we've encountered, artists/exhibitions/ paintings etc we've come across lately.   Our main aim is to use different media, techniques etc and our imaginations and creativity .Our first meeting was very successful. The subject was "animals" and art work ranged from tigers to butterflies in mixed media with a lino- printed owl by Helen and a collaged dragonfly by Betty.

Our next subject is "Our Environmental Crisis" and anything goes!! See the results on December 20th at 7-30pm. Di has the link so contact her and join in .


These have started again on the fourth Wednesday of the month at 7-30pm. 

At the first meeting members tried leaf printing as well as showing their paintings done during the lockdown period. It was obvious that there is alot of talent in the Society!

Here is a report from Di on the latest meeting. 

Our November meeting focused on negative spaces. There were 2 videos and Helen and Di demonstrated drawing. Henry answered questions about his fabulous poured painting "FLOW" which he had embellished with gold & bronze paint and also applied a resin finish to it. Finally the members drew one of their shoes paying attention to the negative spaces.
