The group meets every Tuesday morning at the Marsh Street Centre, at 9:00 to paint together. Everyone brings their own equipment i.e. paper or canvas, water colour palette, acrylic/and or oils paints and required pallet. The Marsh Street Centre sets up the tables and chairs for us. They also provide coffee and we provide the sweets for our mid-morning break. We paint until about 10:30, take a break, and then continue until 1:00. We usually stop at about 12:30 and critique each others work. Of course if anyone needs help they always ask for it.
We are very lucky because we seem to have an abundance of talent. If someone does not want feedback, that's ok too.
Workshops given by local artists are also available.
We have the cost of renting the Centre so we charge $10.00 per session. We also hire a experienced painter, from the local area, to come and give a demonstration and then to critique our work. This usually happens about once a month. We pay them for their time.
Not everyone is an experienced painter, several people have just bought the materials and started in. Nancy can provide a very good list for beginners.
Painting is a bit of a sink hole but if you love painting it is a lot of fun. We have a fabulous pot luck lunch in December and in June.
We have a full list of all our members with telephone numbers and email addresses. There is regular communications between us and through the Probus newsletter.
Some people might think this is just for women, but we have a good number of men and they seem to be really enjoying themselves. Everyone is welcome to come. We encourage people to check us out on a Tuesday morning, maybe stay for coffee.
