Just a reminder about Tuesday 24th November at the Swarthmore, when we have Louise Courtnell providing a demo/workshop 'Understanding Tone & Colour'.  Louise was taught by the late Robert Lenkievicz and is a very proficient artist and teacher so we have an opportunity to learn a great deal.  Please aim to get to the Swarthmore by 18:45 so that Louise is not delayed in starting, and bring acrylic paints and a board that has been prepared with black paint as a ground.

Next week is the ‘Greek Odyssey’ evening when our focus will be on painting Greece.  I shall be providing some images but feel free to bring your own favourite photos if you prefer.  If you would would like to try a collage Mike will be on hand to provide guidance and there will be a supply of Greek newsprint, glue and other textured materials available. 
For the benefit of those who were not present at the AGM on Tuesday, John Washbrook stood down as Chairman having completed his three years, but was very pleased to hand over the reins to Madeleine Sampson who was unanimously elected as your new Chairperson.

Just a reminder that on 19th October we have Ian Barlow to tutor our life drawing group.   Ian will pose the model for 4 different poses of 5/10 minutes each and then one long pose after the break when he will be on hand to provide assistance and advice as required.
The following week its our AGM and we hope that all members will attend as we appreciate your ideas and help with running the club. There will be some light refreshments available, and we shall be electing some new committee members.


The ‘season of mists and mellow fruitfulness’ is upon us again.  The trees are starting to turn, and we shall be painting Autumn scenes today. An image will be projected to work from, photographs will be available, or of course, you can bring your own source material.
Autumn also means that subscriptions are now due. It’s still only £15 which can be paid to Phil when you sign in, or sent to John Washbrook by cheque made out to ‘Plymouth Arts Club’. Many thanks to the members who have already paid.
