11 April 2019 – Feathers

On Thursday 11th April we are very lucky to have live models (of the feathered variety) to sketch and paint. Do come along and have a go! We will also have some feathers, a stuffed bird and reference pictures if you would rather draw something that doesn’t keep moving! Trimpley Village Hall, 7.15 pm. Feel free to bring friends and family along to join in.

21 March 2019 – Visit to Wolverley Animal care Center

A big thumbs up to Wolverley Animal Centre Centre based at the school! 18 KAS members attended the afternoon drawing session and everyone had a thoroughly enjoyable couple of hours drawing a variety of animals. Lucy and her team looked after us brilliantly and there was copious amounts of cakes, tea and coffee on offer. We enjoyed ourselves so much, we might just have to go back again!

14 March 2019 – Drawing Animals

What a great evening! Lesley’s dog Bruno was the star of the show and we had some great sketches of him. Some members brought in other work and there was a variety of other animals on the easels, including squirrels and wolves.

Thursday, 14 March, we have an animal drawing session and we will have a model dog to draw, courtesy of Lesley. We will also bring lots of reference material to study. So come along with your art stuff and have a go. There will be helping hands if you need some advice about how to go about drawing animals. Don’t forget to bring in a painting for the 6 week exhibition at the dentist. Make sure it is labelled with your name, title, medium and price if for sale.
