Last week at the club
On Sunday 4th February Jenny Rae led a pottery workshop providing a wonderful insight into sculpting 'Garden Gargoyle Planters'. During the workshop Jenny provided details on how to position all facial features, build bone structures and insert all the facial indentations to create a realistic 3D facial image. This was quite a challenging workshop, but so valuable, and many would benefit from a repeat of this excellent workshop, at a later time, to consolidate this experience which pushed boundaries but inspired participants to want to do more sculpting in the future. Next for pottery class members is the annual DVD event which takes place this coming Saturday, 10th February, 1-4 pm. They will be watching renowned ceramicists sharing their skills and techniques in handbuilding and throwing. No doubt this will be followed by much discussion. On Sunday 18th February, 2-4 pm, Dorothy Black, a Fife artist who works from her studio in Markinch, will demonstrate how she produces 'Big Flowers with Acrylics and Mixed Media'. The following Sunday, 25th February, 1-4 pm, Ann Watson, one of the winners in the Shell exhibition in 2017, will return to to Kirkcaldy Art Club to lead a workshop in 'Developing a Painting in Acrylics, using Texture and Acrylic Inks'. Meanwhile preparations are being made for Kirkcaldy Art Club's annual exhibition which takes place this year in the Kirkcaldy Galleries in early March. Looking further ahead summer school classes are currently at the planning stage. Lots going on as usual !
