The Village Artists Group warmly welcomes anyone who has an interest in
drawing and painting. The present members are of all ages and come from all
walks of life. They have two things in common: a keen interest in painting
and drawing, and a belief that talent and achievement can be developed and
enriched by the mutual encouragement of each other's work. A few of the
group have had some formal training but most have not - some are beginners.
The group meets three times a week at The Memorial Hall; Stoke- sub -Hamdon
during school term times and everyone is welcome.
* Mondays - 10.00am to 12.30pm
* Thursdays - 7.00pm to 9.30pm
* Fridays - 10am to 12.30pm
There is no compulsion to go to all three!
Each year a number of evening demonstrations and Saturday one-day workshops
are held. Non members are welcome. If you would be interested in seeing what
we do before committing yourself, please come along to any session and talk
to any of the members. Feel free to bring your paints or pastels and join in
Exhibitions are held at least once a year where we hope to sell some of our
masterpieces! We also support the Stoke-sub-Hamdon May Fayre and the
Stoke-sub-Hamdon Flower Show with small exhibitions.
In July each member receives a programme for the following year listing the
subject that will be the focus for each week. For example a very few are
listed below just to give you a taste:
Autumn term: watercolour portraits, acrylic abstract still life,
geometry in paintings, pastel flowers
Spring term: hands and feet, fantasy, movement and motion
Summer term: local scenes, fauvism, impressionism in the style of
Sickert or Monet
Should you prefer it, all members are free to pursue their own work during
the sessions and need not abide by the planned programme.
