Beginners Courses – Week 4 & Pop-Up Exhibition!!

Leave a comment

Hi folks

This week the “Places” Beginners Mixed Media Course used charcoal blocks to create these industrial images.  It’s a pretty messy process but worth it for such striking results.  In the Beginners Drawing Course Level 2 we tried a few different exercises to help us to draw what we actually see and also to think about “negative space”.    The Beginners Watercolour Painting Course 2 experimented with different ways to paint landscapes using all the techniques we have covered so far.

You always rise to every challenge I give you.  So thank you to all of you for being willing to just have a go no matter what seemingly bonkers ideas I present you with.  Now it’s time to show off…..

On Friday 8th November we will be having a “Pop-Up” Exhibition at Headingley Parish Hall, St Michael’s Road, Headingley, LS6 3AW, 6-9pm.  This means you bring your work along with you on the night and take it away again at the end.  Anyone who has ever attended a Leeds Art Group course is welcome to exhibit.  Friends and family are also welcome to attend or anyone who just wants to come along and see what we do.  If you would like to exhibit a piece of work please email me for further details at:  leedartgroup@yahoo.co.uk.  There will also be a secondhand bookstall so please bring along any spare books you have on the night.  Hope you can make it!

See you next week.
