Workshops and Outdoor/Indoor Painting Days 

SUMMER 2019 details:

Unfortunately, due to the work involved in staging the Groups’ Annual Exhibition in The Old Town Quarry from 23rd August to 12th September 2019,  Lynne was unable to offer One Day Workshops and Outdoor Painting Days in local venues last Summer.

Do hope you were able to visit our Exhibition, which was for three weeks instead of the usual single day! — and showcased the Students’ excellent artwork!

 

We look forward to planning some for Summer 2020 — Students’ suggestions/requests welcome!

Below are examples/types of Painting Days and Workshops we did in 2018 :–
