Welcome to 2018

HAPPY NEW YEAR to everyone and THANK YOU for your continued support.

2017 was another good year for our group, the highlight being our successful Open Day in November, with lots of visitors, several paintings sold and commissions taken.

A year ago you wrote down 3 arty objectives that you wanted to achieve in 2017. Did you try new mediums and techniques? Were you pleased with your achievements?

Our blog continues here on mcartgroup.wordpress.com where the newsletter is published every two months, together with anything relating to the group and with photos of the sessions. This also gives you the opportunity to have your work on show, so please continue to look at the blog and email Susan your paintings for inclusion.

Don’t forget to become a ‘follower’, if you haven’t already done so, to ensure that you get email alerts every time something is posted on this site. The blog is for you, so please use it!

For 2018 we will be having another Open Day in November and be painting at Chalk Church in the summer.

The annual subs of £15.00 are now due.

A paying-in form is provided with this newsletter and cheques should be made payable to ‘M & C Art Group’.

Please return forms and cheques to Susan as soon as possible (an email with her postal address will be sent) at the latest by the end of February. Alternatively, please hand your form and your cash/cheque to Susan at one of the meetings asap.

If you no longer wish to be a member, please let Susan know asap, so she can offer a place to someone on the waiting list.

All Wednesday evenings will be free again this year, unless we have a guest artist or model. No bookings are required for Wednesday evenings but please book for all Saturday workshops as we may occasionally have to limit numbers at the request of the artist.

Free coffee, tea and biscuits will be provided at all meetings.

The session ideas we suggest are to help you think of what to paint…if you are already working on something else, no problem at all, please come along anyway for a cuppa and a natter!
