Scarborough Art Society celebrates 80 creative years
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.
