Artis­tic En­deav­ours

Evergreen - - The Past In Colour -

Ear­lier this year on BBC One there was an ex­cel­lent se­ries on Sun­day evenings called The Big Paint­ing Chal­lenge. It was a com­pe­ti­tion be­tween am­a­teur pain­ters and each week they were set a se­ries of three chal­lenges, which they were judged on. At the end of each pro­gramme the artist whose work had failed to im­press the judges was elim­i­nated from the con­test. It re­ally high­lighted the tal­ents of the am­a­teur artists and it was great to see them mak­ing progress across the weeks.

Art classes are a pop­u­lar pas­time for many peo­ple and this is some­thing which Muriel Bowles, from High­cliffe, in Dorset, has chron­i­cled in the fol­low­ing poem.
