Our next meeting is on 22nd September, hope you can all come. I thought we would continue with our theme of 'Holiday'. You can either start working with whatever you selected as your holiday inspiration or work from the Ideas Book if you have started one. If you would like to start an Ideas Book, you will need to bring a sketchbook, photos, magazine cuttings etc., from one or all of the first three inspirations which were HOLBEIN, FLOWERS BEGINNING WITH THE LETTER 'H' AND THOMAS HARDY POEMS. The idea is that now most of us have finished our C&G, we will start to make pieces for future exhibitions. Hope to see you all soon.
