We were all blown into the class by strong winds today but this didn’t stop anybody from turning up to paint. The group are working on studies for the upcoming Silver Views exhibition in April, with some of the students progressing enough to be able to move onto painting on canvases.
Here are just some of the comments from the group:
“I am enjoying this – not quite worked like this before.”
“I just learnt how to filter in sky – beautiful!”
“…friendly class – Im learning…”
“…interesting but I feel I’m not getting there – keeps your mind occupied…”
As you can see, there is mixed feedback, this just goes to show that this workshop can be as challenging and delightful in ways you didn’t know. On top of this, they all said I make a good cup of tea!
The Art Group painting workshop is held every Monday 11am – 1pm and is open to all those over 50 living on the Aylesbury or SE17. Run in partnership with Southwark Pensioners Centre (SPC). See our website for more details: www.artinthepark.co.uk
