Our last couple of weeks
This has been a quieter week at Kirkcaldy Art Club. A summer term class, 'Painting with the wrong colours' led by local artist and tutor, May Snaddon began on Monday. Participants began by using resources, art books etc to look at colour in detail and made notes on the use of particular colours and how they could be produced. This was followed by planning options for painting and the colours to be used. Later in the week, on Thursday , they were going to begin to develop their painting, either using oils or acrylics. This was a different approach to developing a painting and was enjoyed and appreciated by all. The children also had their art class on Monday. They have all quickly adapted to their new tutor, Dorothy Black, and are progressing well. On Wednesday afternoon the untutored painting class met for the last session, now ready to have a summer break. On Saturday 1st June our first outdoor painting / sketching class will take place in Falkland, 10 am - 3 pm, led by Kirkcaldy artist, Irene Thomson. Hopefully the weather will be good. Two weeks later, on Saturday 15th June, Irene will lead a second outdoor class at Lower Largo. There are four spaces left in this class if anyone is interested. Also this weekend is 'Raku Firing Day' at Cheryl Stewarts livery. Pottery members will be there to see their creations being fired in an oil drum, 'outdoor kiln'. This is an exciting event as no one knows how their pottery items will look, as they will be affected by the smoke swirling around!! Later in June, on Tuesday18th and Wednesday 19th, Bill Bruce, another Kirkcaldy artist, will lead 'Art at the Harbour', around Dysart Harbour. The Tuesday session is already fully booked but there is one space left in the Wednesday session. The fee for these classes is £9 per day.
