As most of you know I have been running a little club at my studio at Newhampton Arts Centre for a few years now. We met once a month to work on small-scale art, sketchbooks and sometimes textiles. It was a great opportunity to swap ideas, have some social time and eat quite a lot of biscuits.
We all found it invaluable to get out of the house and away from other distractions to get cracking with what we love to do. There was no tuition, but ideas and motivation were in abundance. We also laughed!
Since the pandemic hit this had to stop. I know we have missed it. But we must look for new opportunities to meet, connect and be inspired.
This is an art club for all – no matter what stage or standard. Who knows how it might develop…organically I hope? ‘Wolf Town Art Club’ is a safe supportive space to practice art. For now we will host on Zoom. You will click the link (which I send you a few days before our meet up) just before 11am on21st March and we will sign off at 1pm. Bring your own lunch or favourite cuppa.
Do bring along anything you have been working on – especially any results from last time if you came – we might have time to show some to each other – and anything you would like to work on after my activities if there is time and if you wish. No pressure here!
We all love birds really and I thought this would be a fun theme – some can be really quirky and full of expression. Accuracy is NOT required!!!!!
Since there has been quite a lot of interest we may not have time to do lots of chatting so I thought I could do a couple of fun activities with you in sketchbooks or on paper so that we could loosen up and learn about our materials and try a new activity or two – who knows how this might inspire you. Depending on numbers I might group you for a chat in the middle and we can show our work at the end (although there is ZERO pressure to do this) if we want.
The plan this time is that I talk a bit about FREE AND QUICK DRAWING and we do SOME SPEEDY AND FUN ACTIVITIES. No need to be too serious!!
We did collage last time and it was great fun – let’s have more jolly times with some different exercises! You don’t have to have been before!
Please bring some easy to use art materials – pens, felt tips, crayons, watercolours or soluble pencils or blocks and a pencil , biro or marker pen – a few pastels might be useful this time – use what you have around the house – no posh materials needed at all. If you have any gouache paint that can be excellent.
Here is a link to Jackson’s Art Online – if you shop through this link you will get up to 10% discount:
Also bring a glue stick and scissors, a sketchbook or papers to work on – about A5 size is ideal, or whatever you have to hand. Look out and gather a couple of old magazines, a bit of newspaper or an old book that can be ripped up. Even some envelopes like the ones from the bank – they have useful inside patterns to utilize – can be good and I like brown parcel paper. If you like you can just use drawing materials and not collage anything at all.
Before the day I will send you all a link to the Zoom session for ‘WOLF TOWN ART CLUB’ It’s nice to have your camera on in the session so we can feel more like a club but if you don’t want to you can switch off your camera.
Looking forward to seeing you all there – limited space so … sign up quickly to avoid disappointment!! https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/wolf-town-art-club-sketchbook-art-club-online-april-18th-tickets-147603926317?aff=ebdssbeac
