Kirkcaldy Art Club closed

Due to the ongoing situation in the world we are living in Kirkcaldy Art Club is now closed, like many venues. All 'Spring into Summer' classes have had to be cancelled. This was sad as so many people had signed up for them, including people who are not members, keen to try out pottery, printing or painting. Also the exhibition of work done by the printing class, planned to take place at the Harbourmaster's House is delayed. We have still to hear when this will take place. Hopefully, in a few months, the coronavirus will have gone and we can make plans again. For the meantime we will enjoy a break and look forward to September when life for everyone is hopefully back to a regular routine

Open Weekend and Exhibition

As we approach the end of this term we are now busy organising the next programme of classes for the 'Spring into Summer' term which starts in early April. Often, in this term, there are spaces in classes which we can offer to non members. It is a good opportunity to try something new, ie printing, painting, and pottery. There are four pottery classes, a printing class, a children's class and five painting classes all offering various options and choices, some during the day, and others in the evening. Information about these classes will be on our website, www.kirkcaldyartclub.co.uk/classes. We are also preparing for our Open Weekend on Saturday and Sunday, 21st and 22nd March, 11am- 4

Weekly news

On Sunday 23rd February Daniel Scottow led a workshop, 'Dramatic Skies'. This was developed in a landscape but the major focus was on the sky, which took up most of the canvas / board. Participants worked with big brushes, also fan brushes, exploring ways to extend drying times, building up layers of cloud until they became three dimensional. Some people opted for soft pastel colours and smoothness, others chose dark dramatic colours. This, for many was a very different way to paint skies, and with excellent results. Participants enjoyed Daniel's approach and Daniel was very impressed with the paintings produced by art club members. Last Sunday, 1st March it was very busy at Kirkcaldy Art
