Complete your Christmas card designs to hand in tonight for printing.

2nd October
Visiting artist Lynn Ward from Leyburn will give a short demonstration in acrylic then
supervise members work. Bring your own materials.

9th October
Live model tonight!

16 October
Let’s try miniatures. No demonstration but just ‘have a go’ doing simple shapes in dots or cross hatching using crayon or pencil or acrylic on Bristol paper. Paper will be
available if you don’t have any. But bring very small brushes as used for painting models. (Watercolour may take too long to dry). There is a useful article in Leisure
Painter Sept 2018 if you have a copy. Hopefully there will be expert help available!

23 October
Memorise a still life for 5 minutes, then we’ll cover the objects and you can draw/paint
what you remember!

The subject tonight is ‘From Above’. Anything that relates to the subject in any medium. Thinking caps on!

Watercolour with Christine Redhead and/or Linda Coleby.

13 November
Live model again tonight

20 November
Any medium do your own thing – subject ‘Three’

27 November
Bones & Shells to do your own still life. We have a few bones but if you have a
‘skeleton (or shells) in a cupboard’ do bring them along to share.

4 December
Let’s try silk painting. Another ‘have a go night’, we have some silk, gutta and paints
and limited knowledge! Following an article in Leisure Painter July 2019 – basic
techniques to paint flowers on silk. If you have any suitable materials please bring
them along, ie brushes, embroidery hoop.

11 December
The subject is ‘Selfie’ any medium, whatever you like!

Social night – bring nibbles! Free to do your own work.
