We have at least two exhibitions each year. This gives members an opportunity to prepare paintings, display them and hopefully start to enjoy selling their work! Our last one was at Lydiate parish hall, May 2019
Every one can learn art!
Many people believe that to take up art you have to be born
with a natural talent...! Not true...
You can be taught the basics of art, and much more.... Yes, you can be taught drawing, art, painting.
In the same way you'd learn other things in life:
how to drive, ride a bike, bake a cake. All you need to learn art is to have nothing more than the desire to want to do it!
These varied art workshops offer: watercolour, pen & ink, creative drawing, working semi-abstract, taster life drawing sessions.
Visits to major exhibitions
Last September members visited the John Moores painting prize exhibition at the Walker art gallery, Liverpool. A unique opportunity to see 'modern art' up close, and hopefully inspire members to re-think how they produce art, or to trigger ideas of their own.
Painting out of doors
When the weather allows, the members on the weekly classes, also the Saturday class, work out of doors. Each venue allows us this opportunity, whether in Southport, Lydiate and Hightown. Artists enjoy this experience as it allows you to work directly from the subject, much better than relying on a photograph!
Weekly art classes
Art classes, especially for beginners, held at Southport, Hightown (Formby), Lydiate and Liverpool.
Now taking names for the next beginners class, commencing around mid May 2019.
If you have previous art experience, then you might well slot in immediately. Contact me for more details.
