Beginners Courses – Week 7 & New Courses starting February 2020

Hi everyone

We have now come to the end of the current term and the “Places” Beginners Mixed Media Course finished with a splash of gold in these Buddha pictures.  The Beginners Drawing Course Level 2 focused on accuracy in both proportion and tone to create a group jigsaw where everything matched up brilliantly.    In the Beginners Watercolour Painting Course 2 we painted directly from objects rather than photographs and practised all the techniques we have learned so far!  What a great term full of fantastic pictures!  I hope you’re all pleased with what you’ve achieved.

We’ve got a bit of a break before the next term starts in February but remember to book your place as spaces can fill up quickly.  There will be a one day Gustav Klimt Pattern Workshop on 10th February 2020 and the following courses will be starting in the week commencing Monday 24th February 2020: Beginners Birds Drawing Course, Beginners Drawing Course Level 1, Beginners Portraiture Course Level 1 and Beginners Animal Portraiture Course 2.  For further details on all these courses go to the “Courses for 2020” page.  Email me at:  leedsartgroup@yahoo.co.uk or tel: 07788 871286 if you have any questions or would like to book a place.

Hope you can all join me next year.

Bye for now.

Beginners Courses – Week 6 & Pop-Up Exhibition!!

Hi folks

In the “Places” Beginners Mixed Media Course this week, we created these colourful, mosaic style pictures using magazine collage.  The Beginners Drawing Course Level 2  had two challenges in one: drawing both glass and water, with some brilliant results.  The Beginners Watercolour Painting Course 2 used all the techniques we have practiced so far to produce beautiful, enlarged paintings of flowers.

Then after we’d done all that, we had our “Pop-Up” Exhibition!  Thank you to everyone who took part and came along on the night.  It was a great turn out and fantastic to see so many of you exhibiting your work and getting to meet other members of the group.  We had over 110 pieces of work on display looking brilliant all together.  Thank you so much to everyone who helped out with setting up and packing away.  The winner of the Favourite Picture Vote was Maureen Cormack.  It was a tie between 2 of her pictures: “Harold The Hare” and “Winter Landscape” (both pictured below).

2nd place:  “Leigh” by Eliza Perdon

3rd place: “Bridge at Malham” by Marie Imeson

Well done everyone.  I’m so proud of you all and really pleased that you got a chance to show off a bit!

See you all soon.
