[b]For the past few months our Sunday workshops have been based on sketching or painting still life and landscape.
But, from July, we return to working from the human figure. The following three workshops will all take place in the Arts Centre:
Figure drawing/painting with Rita Rodner. Those attending the Thursday evening life classes will already be familiar with the work of this talented young artist.
Figure or portrait* painting with our former president Terry Raybould.
Figure drawing/painting with the Peterborough Open Studios artist, Pete Hayward. Some of you may have enjoyed the abstract painting workshop he took for us.
(*depending on the model booked)
All workshops are in the Stamford Arts Centre Studio and run from 10.00 until 16.00. There will be half-hour breaks for tea or coffee morning and afternoon and a lunch-break between 12.30 and 13.30.
All those attending would have to supply their own materials.
W.V.A.S members are asked to contribute £5 toward the Society’s expenses (tuition, hire of room, model’s fee). Non-members are very welcome but would be asked to pay £10 for the day.
