What we do

The second Art group now has the name Artistic Licence -we hope this conveys our inclusive ethos.

Our regular membership is about 10, so we have room for a few more. Between us, we use a wide renge of media and are happy to show other group members who would like to try a different medium.

Phone Bern Haigh for more information.

You can see examples of the group's work on the Art Gallery page.

May 2018

Our Artistic Licence Group is flourishing and has had some more members joining recently. The work produced is excellent and encompasses a variety of different mediums and styles. Occasionally group sessions are encouraged but there is no compulsion to join in. Everybody can express themselves as they wish. We support and help each other as required and enjoy the social aspect of like-minded companionship.

For information contact the co-ordinators.

November 2017

Artistic Licence continues to go from strength to strength.  On several sessions we have had 11 or 12 persons and we now have some regular new members.

We are a friendly, relaxed group continuing to express our art in all different media.  Some members like to stick to their own style and subject, whilst others tend to diversify and try different topics using different materials.  All aspects are welcome and encouraged and I am delighted to report that we are becoming keener and more adventurous all the time.

In the last Newsletter we suggested that we would try a group session when we would all work on one set theme.  This we did by bringing in some objects such as bowls, jugs and pieces of fruit from which we made up a central 'still life' subject.  We then used our preferred media to put the still life onto paper/canvas.  It provided for a very interesting period of discussion afterwards.

Since then some of the group have done portrait sketches of other members and we are now considering a regular session every so often for group artistry.  Being a convivial and sociable group there is no compulsion to take part and anyone is free to 'do their own thing' should they so wish.

For more information please contact either of the co-ordinators above.
