Seeking Inspiration: where to start
Teresa Sands talks about finding inspiration during lock down.
If, like me, you are in need of a little guidance when it comes to producing a new piece of work, the following might be useful. For talks about artists, or art related subjects, The Art Society is offering a series of on-line talks and lectures for free. You do not have to be a member of the society to access these – they are open to all. Go to : connected.theartsociety.org or email firstname.lastname@example.org
THE LOCAL ANGLE
Of course, you don’t have to go too far for instruction, advice and reassurance. Local artists have organised themselves and can be contacted via the web.
As mentioned in her Profile, Andrea Naylor offers advice/tuition on working in pastels: andreanaylor.co.uk
Claire Daniel uses Zoom and Houseparty systems to offer tuition for a range of creative classes. Contact Claire on: email@example.com
Jax Hives has also let us know what she has been up to – creatively of course! She writes:
“I have been asked to do a drawing exercise for ACTIVE Magazine – a fabulous local, free magazine full of interesting information and ideas – which will be on-line from Wednesday, April 29: theactivemag.com and you’ll find Jax’s contribution on page 19. This is a simple still life for beginners/refreshers
– just to help with a creative nudge during these difficult times. Jax is also re-vamping her Instagram page – take a look: JAXCREWARTIST
Jax organises the Tinwell Art Group, where a number of the participants are also WVAS members. The group was originated by Trevor Tanser who sadly passed away a few years ago. The Monday meetings are not running at the moment (we all know why) but members are actively keeping their art practices going, sending photos of work to each other and keeping in touch by e-mail.
