We are a portraiture group with a wide variety of approaches and skill levels. We choose our own media — charcoal, ink (pen, brush or broken stick), pencil, paint (oil, acrylic , gouache or watercolour). Our models are of a wide age range and sit in the one pose (20 minute time spans) for one session. Participants concentrate on working quietly, but enjoy catching up and discussing their art during the model breaks.
We appraise each other’s work and learn by osmosis, rather than tutoring. Everyone shares in setting up the easels and donkeys at the start of the morning and also in clearing away and tidying up.
Please bring your own art materials (when you have them), a drink and a snack if required plus cleaning gear for your area. The CAW room is equipped with tables, easels, donkeys, small tables and chairs. Please arrive at least 10 minutes early to set up. We hope to see you there.
Payment for Art Groups is non-refundable.
