The Scarborough Evening News - - WELCOME TO YOUR NEWS -

Scar­bor­ough Art Society be­gins its 80th year with a new sea­son of art demon­stra­tions on Wed­nes­day March 1 at Queen Street Methodist Hall.

Meet­ings are held on the first Wed­nes­day of the month from March to Novem­ber, and last two hours start­ing at 7pm. Re­fresh­ments are served.

The 2017 pro­gramme of­fers how-to-do-it tips us­ing wa­ter­colour, acrylic, oil and pas­tel. Pas­tels are the forte of Su­san Maud who opens the sea­son in March with “Cap­tur­ing a Like­ness”.

One of the Society mem­bers usu­ally of­fers a pose and as a re­ward is able to take home the fin­ished work.

“In­dus­trial Land­scapes” with Philip Boville fills the April slot. His back­ground is in steel mak­ing and his unique hot work is widely ad­mired El­iz­a­beth Nast fol­lows in May with “Cityscapes and Peo­ple” – de­picted in oils.

In June Andy Brod­er­ick will use wa­ter­colour to por­tray “Art in The Wild”.

In July the sec­re­tary of Scar­bor­ough Art Society Bar­rie Pet­ter­son will use the “new” in­ter­ac­tive acrylics made by Ate­lier to il­lus­trate nar­ra­tive paint­ing: “How to Paint a Story”. For more de­tails about the rest of the pro­gramme, call in to any meet­ing, and pay £3 as a guest. New mem­bers are al­ways wel­come. For in­for­ma­tion call (01723) 314200.
