In Amer­sham, the Sim­patico artists have been invit­ing guests to see how they work in St Michaels Church, Sy­camore Road.

Ce­cile Gal­lina, from the Sim­patico artists, said: “We had a suc­cess­ful start with a steady flow of peo­ple through­out the week.

“As in pre­vi­ous years we have had a num­ber of peo­ple who would like to take up art and were in­ter­ested in Jenny and Liz’s Pop In and Paint group held in the church ev­ery last Fri­day of the month, ex­cept Au­gust.”

The artist added: “Peo­ple com­ing to the church en­joy chat­ting with us, pick­ing our brains on the tech­niques that we are us­ing, some peo­ple try their hand at paint­ing and chil­dren love it if we give them a piece of pa­per and some crayons or paint brushes to play with.”
