22nd October - Step by Step Watercolour worksheets
You can choose from any of the five step by step watercolour worksheets by Lynn Norris as shown in the image below. I will bring the sheets to club to help you decide, then i would suggest you use your ipad /mobile phone to take an image of each page to follow on the night/home afterwards. If you don't have access to these please let me know and I will make a colour copy for you. Materials and colours required are on each sheet.
5th & 12th November - Neil & abstract acrylics
Neil will help us experiment with abstract acrylic techniques. Notes below from Neil
Simple abstract technique layering acrylic with masking tape to create seasonal woods. Examples below of how autumn, winter and spring with light coming through could develop:
Your favourite blue, yellow, red, green, brown and lots of white acrylic paint
Stiff board preferred or canvas minimum A3 size better bigger for impact
various widths of masking tapes (I have bought three different sizes for us to share - Fi)
stiff large brushes or palette knife
flat small board to mix paints and water jars
protective newspaper and clothes for splashing around!
hair driers would be helpful to speed up the drying 2hrs of concentration and inspiration! Good luck
26th November & 3 rd December - Winter Wonderland
Create a seasonal piece of art work in a medium of your own choice. It can be of anything, but it needs to capture the feeling of the season, meaning of Christmas or winter in general.
10th December, 7pm -Christmas Meal at The Foresters Arms in Lower Cumberworth.
Following on from the success of last year's Christmas meal I have booked The Foresters Arms in Lower Cumberworth again for our festivities on Tuesday 10th December at 7pm for a 7.30 sit down!
The cost per head is £18.50 for two courses or £22.50 for three courses. This will be subsidised by art group funds, I just need to confirm by how much, watch this space! Traditionally we bring a bargain Secret Santa gift to be handed out by our very own Father Christmas, more details of this later too.
Now meeting at Denby Dale allotment, just off Trinity Drive, near Springfield Mill at 6.30 pm, then afterwards to Karen’s for a cuppa and a biscuit. You might need a folding chair. I’ll post on the homepage if it’s cancelled due to bad weather.
