2022 First meeting of the year

Dear Members, We will kick off the year with a socially-distanced gathering at the George Hotel in Bewdley for a bite to eat and an indoor sketching session. A provisional programme for the year will be made available to give you some idea about the proposed activities. Hope to see you there!

11 November 2021 – Demo with Tess

A fab evening was had with members learning about frottage, or rubbings. Member Tess demonstrated her methods of creating unusual and original art using textures and rubbings from everyday objects. Members were invited to have-a-go and bring along items that they had collected. The project will be continued at the next meeting on 25th November 2021, so do try to be there and see what you can come up with.


Despite a difficult year, KAS has managed to hold a few meetings and outdoor events this year. We now need to look forward to the coming year and start arranging our programme for 2022. Committee members are invited to meet on 2nd December to put forward their ideas.

The latest Newsletter is now available, see Newsletters link on the right.

Our next meeting will be on 11th November 2021 at 7.15pm at Trimpley Village Hall where member Tess will be talking about what inspires her art and demonstrating some of her techniques. Members will have the opportunity to have a go and get creative during the second half of the evening, with a follow-up session on 25th November.

14 October 2021 – Theme is Leaves

The theme for our October meeting is ‘Leaves’. Interpret however you want. Bring your reference materials to our next meeting on 14th October and see what you can create. Here is Karen’s watercolour of abstracted autumn leaves to get you started.

UPDATE: We have sold 3 paintings so far! The exhibition ends on 31st October 2021.

22 July 2021 – newsletter and update

It was great to see everyone on 8th July 2021 for our first meeting back after lock-down. Thanks to all who shared their experiences, artwork and projects.

We had our first art session on Thursday 22nd July at Trimpley Village Hall where members worked on the theme of ‘Holidays’ to get us back into the groove.

The next meeting will be on Thursday 12th July 2021 at 7.15 pm at Trimpley, when the theme for the month of August will be Abstract. Bring something along that you like, it may be a cutting, an object, it may just be a colour of something or a shape. The idea is to use this object as the kick off point to explore shape or colour and see where it takes you.

There is a new Newsletter available, go to the Newsletters page to download or members should have received an email with it attached. See you soon!
