 Art for All

This Group meets on the 1st & 3rd Tuesday of each month from 10 til 12.00 at The Newark Bowling Club (Situated behind Iceland) The parking is good and the room is light and airy with good space, tables and use of the kitchen.

Cost is around £2 per session to cover room hire and we are trying to build up a small stock of Art materials for members to share.

Sometimes we explore  a subject, chosen by the group, for a block of sessions. For example: Buildings, Landscapes, Sunshine!

 Sometimes, we include workshops led by members of the group or by following a DVD masterclass. For example: working with Chinese brushes & ink, Perspective drawing, exploring Mixed Media & Texture.

Sometimes times we arrange plein air sessions where we enjoy sketching or painting oudoors. For example, the grounds of Rufford Park, the interior of The Navigation Pub, reflections on the River Devon.

Sometimes we do our own thing -----------------always we try to have FUN.

The group is very suppportive and encouraging whatever level you might be at.
