A great start to a brand new term! The Beginners Portraiture Course Level 2 jumped straight in at the deep end and attempted the much feared “self-portrait”. You all did absolutely fantastic and I’ve struggled to narrow it down to just 2 to appear on the website. The Beginners Drawing Course Level 1 started with natural forms to get used to using tone, proportion and composition. Well done everyone!
As mentioned in class, St. Gemma’s Hospice are running a “Secret Art Project” and they have invited members of Leeds Art Group to take part by producing a postcard sized work of art that the hospice will then exhibit and auction. The “Secret” bit is because it’s completely anonymous. So no one knows whose work they are bidding on. Past contributors have included Katherine Jenkins, Stephen Fry, Danny Dyer, Keith Lemon and Ashley Jackson. If anyone wants one of the postcards then please ask me in class or email Michele Barker-Field at: firstname.lastname@example.org. The closing date for entries is 31 August 2018.
Enjoy the sunshine! See you all next week.
P.S. Watch this space for details of our own Leeds Art Group Exhibition at the end of July.
