Art Palette

We have much to look forward to at this time of the year. The main event is the Spring Drinks and AGM to be held on Tuesday 24th March 6 – 7.30pm in the Art Studio. Everyone is welcome. Come and meet the committee and wish the new Chair well. 

Art Classes are well under way. Don’t forget the ‘pay per class’ option. You can book and pay for a three-hour class for just £20 at Reception. Take the receipt with you for the Tutor. This is a great way of trying out a new class before enrolling for the summer term. It is also a great way to fill in an unexpected gap in your week when golf or tennis is cancelled. Open booking for summer classes starts 27th March. Our five-week summer term dates have changed slightly. Kathy starts on 15th April and Charles on 20th April.

The Art Class Exhibition will showcase the work of this year’s students in the Reading Room from the end of March until the PhotoClub Photography Exhibition starts on 24th April. Don’t miss this for your own inspiration and to show your friends and relatives what you can do. We hope it will encourage new Members to dip their toe into the water for the short five-week summer term.
