Drop In & Paint
Every THURSDAY & FRIDAY
Time: 10.00am – 4pm
Fee: £15 per day (or any part thereof)
Whether you’re just a beginner or an experienced artist these days offer inspiration, guidance and fun with like minded people! Lesley Rumble and Val Pettifer take turns hosting these sessions, and both offer help and support in whichever medium you choose to work with, but please note, these days are NOT tutored workshops so you will be encouraged to work independently as far as possible.
The studio can accommodate up to 11 students downstairs, plus there is additional space on the mezzanine floor for another 2 people! In the summer months the attractive garden and courtyard areas make an ideal working area, as well as a pleasant spot to take lunch. Free standing/table-top easels, plus drawing boards, water pots and practice paper are supplied free of charge. A limited selection of watercolour paper, pastel supports and canvas’s may also be purchased from the studio depending on availability. The studio also carries a wide selection of paints and pastels for use by students at a nominal charge. Students who attend regularly can also benefit from the opportunity to purchase discounted art supplies through Val’s SAA Trade Account (please note; a 10% administration fee is levied on all purchases).
An ‘End of Season Exhibition’ is held each year, with up to 80 paintings exhibited. Many of the paintings are for sale, and the studio buzzes all day with enthusiastic family members, friends and the public!
This year’s Drop In Exhibition will be held on the weekend of the 30th November – 1st December 2019
Payment is on the day either by cash or debit/credit card, and no booking is required.
However, it is helpful if you can contact the studio in advance to check that adequate space is available.
Tea, coffee & biscuits are included at no extra charge, but please bring a packed lunch.
