We are a friendly group who are lucky enough to have a local artist on hand to inspire and to teach.
We not only like to paint but to explore and experiment with various media and techniques.
Please have a look at some of our creations by clicking on the links below.
The art group, with Mel as our resident artist and tutor, have had a very successful time at the Heald Green Show. In the Oil/Acrylic Painting category Kelvin Vann came first and Shiela Dawes came second. The Beginners Paintings category saw Pauline Mullarkey take first and third prize. Linda Vann received first prize for her collage work in the Handicraft section. Glenys Steedman came second in the Mixed Media category and Pat Pembridge came second for her silk painting and embroidery in the Any Other Handicraft Item category. As can be seen the art group cover a wide range of media and techniques. Well done to Mel and the art group!
This month we were able to have our first art session en plein air (outside.) We were lucky enough to have Vera very kindly open her beautiful Cheadle Hulme garden for the group, with its wide variety of plants and ornamental features to inspire us. We had a thoroughly enjoyable morning painting, helped by weather that was just right and delicious home baked cakes.
During August 2017 members of the Art Group had the opportunity of joining a collage course run by local artist, Barbara Boswell. This proved to be highly successful. The group learnt how to handle different media and all were amazed at the variety of work that was produced. Here is a small selection, some of which are not yet framed. T
December 2018 Report: View
This year the art group has gone from strength to strength. We have 19 regular members and Mel Edge, a local artist, is now our resident tutor.
We have looked at working in acrylics with a particular emphasis on texture, and have had great fun trying out various texture creating enhancements available on the market.
We have also made a wooden wall hanging and were amazed at the diversity of ideas that we all came up with. The year will end with a painted Christmas card that we can reproduce for sending.
In addition to this we have been lucky enough to have been invited by Bramhall Art Society to a couple of their art sessions where an outside artist gives a presentation. Stephen Coates did a Watercolour Demonstration, Jenny Ferny an Acrylics Demonstration both of which were very interesting and enjoyable. Chris Stubbs
