Love art? Come and join us!
Come and enjoy a couple of hours a week with other art lovers who are discovering or improving their artistic skills. Both beginners and experienced painters are most welcome – don’t worry if you’ve never picked up a brush before – you’re not alone and our classes aren’t the least bit intimidating! Equally, if you’ve been a painter for years, you will find yourself in good company. You can learn painting in watercolour, oils, pastels, acrylics and drawing, so come and see what you can achieve – you’ll be surprised (and I hope, delighted). If you’re not a better picture maker by the end of the term I’ll eat my paintbrush!
The classes are relaxed and friendly – we don’t run prescriptive sessions – I think it’s important that everyone needs to be enthused about what they want to achieve so our tutors and I will happily give you guidance and teaching around what you would like to paint or draw.
Look forward to seeing you!
It’s been a long hibernation since March and we’re hoping our venues will feel confident enough to open again in September so that we can start our Autumn term. I am just waiting for confirmation from them. All precautionary measures for your safety are at the forefront of our minds and I shall detail these shortly.
Assuming we can start again, we shall have two venue changes – one in Hereford and the other in Kington. As the WRVS Centre in Vicarage Road won’t be opening until further notice I am finding a new home in Hereford for this Tuesday class. I’ll keep you posted as soon as I have confirmation of where in Hereford this will be.
Our club in Kington will also be moving from our much-loved venue at the Marches Gallery to Kington Bowls Club in Mill Street as the Gallery unfortunately doesn’t have the capacity for social distancing. We shall very much keep in touch with them however, and they have kindly offered to host exhibitions of members’ work periodically which is a huge delight.
Advertising with details of all the clubs and signing-up dates will go into the Hereford Times in early August so keep an eye out for it! See you soon! Cheers, Liz
STOP PRESS! Out newest club will hopefully be starting up in Much Birch Village Hall in September! Details to follow!
When we get going again we shall be offering the opportunity for anyone who is either starting at a club or who is thinking of joining one, to come along to our Pop-Up Starter Classes. These will be run by our friendly tutors and will help those of you with no experience of painting or drawing to have three hours of tuition to get you underway in the medium of your choice – ie watercolour, oils, acrylics or drawing. Have a look at all the details under the tab on this website page.
And how about a really different way of celebrating a birthday, hen party, or friends and family get-together by having a Grown-Ups’ Painting Party? Three hours of having fun painting pictures and messing about making an abstract art picture with acrylic paints – which you can take home with you of course. All painting materials and refreshments will be provided and you’re welcome to bring your own drinks and eats as well if you’d like to! See the website tab for more details and come and have a different celebration!
Our new Village Art Clubs’ Starter Kit Bags are proving to be very popular as they save the hassle of putting together your kit when you join one of the clubs. They contain all you need to get going in watercolour, oils, acrylics, pastels, gouache or drawing. See the details on the Painting Kit Bags tab on this website page.
