Recent art lectures have been enjoyed by large numbers of Art Group members online …

Thanks for organising the art lectures live on zoom; the lecture on Turner was fascinating …

I could see the details of the sketch books and watercolours so clearly on my screen … the lecturer was knowledgeable about Turner and also how he sketched and painted … 

I enjoyed the questions which other members asked …

… it was so easy to log onto the zoom meeting from my kitchen … finished on time and no need to travel!
