January & February 2020

JANUARY 

Wednesday 8th     7-9pm     –    Snowmen

Keep your favourite snowman snow scene Christmas cards.  Use them for inspiration or use your own imagination to paint a snowman, using any medium, but you could use tissue paper, cotton wool or texture paste to make your snowman 3D.  Perhaps it could be your Christmas card for 2020?  

Also pay subs and have a catch-up with friends.

Saturday 25th     10am-3.30pm     –    Animals in Winter

Think of animals in Wintertime and use any medium, although unpainted white watercolour paper is perfect as snow itself.  Imagine snowy fields with farm animals of cows, sheep or horses. Huskies or reindeer pulling sleds, Arctic or Antarctic animals such as polar bears or penguins.  Animals with their winter coats like arctic hairs, foxes or ptarmigans.  

The fee for today is £6, no need to book.

FEBRUARY

Wednesday 12th     7-9pm    –    Ink

February is usually a dull, drab month, so let’s get colourful.  Use Brusho powders, any inks in bottles or palettes, washable or permanent. Your choice of ink and subject.  If you don’t have any inks then perhaps use watercolour or gouache in strong tones to achieve a bold effect.

Saturday 22nd     10am-3.30pm    –    JMW Turner

The new, polymer £20 note is due for release on 20th February, featuring JMW Turner. Use any medium and paint in his style… plenty of movement, loose, areas of light and dark.  Either your own subject given the Turner treatment or use one of Turner’s paintings for inspiration.

The fee for today is £6, no need to book.
