Here are some ideas of what to paint, but you can, of course, paint anything you’d like to.
PAOTM – JAMES BOND
Draw or paint your favourite James Bond actor from the official EON film productions. There’s Sean Connery, George Lazenby, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, Pierce Brosnan or Daniel Craig. Paint a classic head and shoulders portrait of James Bond or place him in a scene from any of the films.
‘Novem’ in Latin means nine as November was the ninth month in the Roman Republican calendar until 46BCE when two months were added to the beginning of the year. This meant November became the eleventh month of the year in the Julian calendar.
Draw or paint anything to do with November or the number 9…Remembrance Day at the Cenotaph, remembrance poppies at a war memorial, nine drummers drumming from the Twelve Days of Christmas carol, the Gunpowder Plot, Guy Fawkes, fireworks, bonfires, Diwali the festival of light, a fancy number 9 etc.
DYOT – Do Your Own Thing
A good way to end the year is by finishing off any drawings or paintings you’ve done that you haven’t got around to completing yet. Bring along one or many pictures and try and finish them.
HANGING EVENING – Friday 26th November – 7-9pm
Steve will soon be emailing everyone to ask how many framed paintings you will have ready for our Open Day, along with their names and price or NFS (Not For Sale). You can have up to 6 framed paintings as long as they’re not in clip frames and not too big to hang from the hooks. All with D rings, strung across the back and a label hanging down below the frame or on the front with your name, name of the picture, medium and the price. You can also have unlimited mounted pictures for the browsers, but they must be for sale, all labelled front or back.
On hanging evening come along from 7pm and drop off your paintings or stay and help hang them all up.
OPEN DAY – Saturday 27th November – 10am-3pm
The day that we open our doors and invite friends, family and Chalk locals to come and look at what we paint. Please don’t be upset if you don’t sell anything, it’s lovely just to welcome people into the hall to talk about art and painting.
CHRISTMAS PARTY – Wednesday 8th December – 6.30-9pm
An earlier start from 6.30pm come along in your Christmas jumpers and enjoy some quizzes and a game keeping our distance called ‘not pass the parcel’! As some members are still unsure about mixing together we ask that this year that you bring along a plate of food and some drinks just for yourself, NOT to share. Your partner/family are welcome to come along too and nearer the time we’ll ask for numbers so we know how many tables and chairs to get out. Tea, coffee and biscuits will be available as usual if you want to venture into the kitchen.
