ARTWORKSHOPS IN NORFOLK
I have been very busy over the past few weeks organising monthly all day ART WORKSHOPS in my new Norfolk village. I managed to get a good size article in the local magazine that came out at the end of January, and some adverts in other village publications around and about. To date I have had 9 enquiries. If all confirm, then its systems go with the Salvation Army premises in the village centre already booked for the first Saturday of each month. So Ive been beavering away on the jolly old compute preparing leaflets, posters and guidesheets for the members. Plus Ive prepared some tutorial guidelines for myself. Fortunately, I have done this before and only had to find the original documents and update them.
The images above are the ones I put on the leaflets and posters to show prospective group members what you can do with graphite (the cat commission) done with graphitint pencils; pen and wash sketch (the gateway of a church in Wisbech in the Fens); a still life watercolour (corner of the tourist attraction in Lincolnshire The Violet Centre) and the last one is a full size 16 x 20 inch botanical watercolour I did of a King Proetus flower when I was in South Africa last Autumn.
So wish me luck folks. Thats the trouble when you move, you have to start all over again. Fortunately, my lovely art friend Diane took over my classes in the Fens when I left last August and has encouraged them to go in for the GCSE (O level) art exam. Ive popped in to see them and they are doing some extraordinary work and subjects.
