Word of the week

Hi folks

Hope you all had a lovely Christmas. Well done to everyone who found time between sprouts to get arty and thanks for sending me your “Holidays” pictures. As always, a lot of different interpretations on the same theme. Here are just a few of them and you can see more on our Instagram page at: @leedsartgroup.  

Remember you can join in with “Word of the week” at anytime and it’s free for everyone.

This week’s word is…..

Favourite

This could refer to such a wide range of things. For example, your favourite…food, place, flower, colour, person, outfit, book, perfume, song, etc. The possibilities really are endless with this one! I can’t wait to see what you come up with.

Take care.

Word of the week

Hi everyone

Thank you for sending me all your mouth wateringly good pictures of Food and Drink this week. Such a variety of styles, materials and subjects! It’s great to see. Here are just a few of them and you can see more on our Instagram page at: @leedsartgroup.  

Remember you can join in with “Word of the week” at anytime and it’s free for everyone.

This week’s word is…..

Holidays

Something we are probably all in need of right now and might not get for a while but at least we can still draw them! Remember there are no wrong answers. Here are a few suggestions to help spark your imagination: festive holidays, summer holidays, sun, sand, cocktails, snow, mountains, cruises, caravans, brochures,etc.

Word of the week will be continuing each Monday until 11th January 2021. I’d like to take this opportunity to wish all you a very Merry Christmas.

Stay safe.

Word of the week

Hi folks

What a great start to “Word of the week”.  It was so nice to see so many different responses to a single theme.  You’ve been sending me some beautiful pictures this week, so keep ’em coming!  Here are just a few of them and you can see more on our Instagram page at: @leedsartgroup.

Food & Drink

Ok, technically not one word at all but you can’t have one without the other, can you? This is something we are all probably going to be seeing a lot of over the next couple of weeks so let’s celebrate it! You don’t have to stick to just food and drink items either, here are a few other suggestions: chefs, restaurants, pubs, cooking/serving implements, eating, food labels/packets, food/drink production, etc.

Good luck with it, I’m getting hungry just thinking about it!

Word of the week

Hi everyone

Even though the Leeds Art Group courses have finished for 2020 that doesn’t mean that we have to stop making art.  To help inspire you to get those paints/pencils/pens out, each Monday I’ll be posting a word on this website to act as a starting point for your own creativity.  You can use any materials and work in any style you like.  There are no wrong answers!  So wherever your creativity leads you, that is exactly the right direction.  When you’ve finished your drawing/painting etc. you are welcome to send me a photo of it for feedback/advice and there’s a good chance I’ll post it on this website or our Instagram page @leedsartgroup.  This is free for everyone (even if you’re not a member of Leeds Art Group) and you don’t need to apply or sign up for it.  Just start drawing!

Send your photos to me via email at:  leedsartgroup@yahoo.co.uk or send them via WhatsApp to this number: 07788 871286.  We also have a WhatsApp group for Leeds Art Group where you can upload your own photos.  Just let me know your mobile number if you would like me to add you to the WhatsApp group (you will need to have a WhatsApp account already in order to join the WhatsApp group).

So here we go!  The first word of the week is……..

Music

Here are a few suggestions where this might take you but you don’t have to stick to these:  musical instruments, concert halls, sheet music, song lyrics, musicians, album covers etc…

I can’t wait to see what you come up with!

Take care
