Earlier this week Pat Bray returned to Kirkcaldy Art Club to lead a workshop in Life Drawing. Pat and Kay, model, always work seamlessly together, through a number of poses, with participants developing their skills further in life drawing. For some this was a first time and quite challenging. However everyone really enjoyed the workshop and will , no doubt be looking forward to the next one. This week, on Thursday 14th March Irene Coulthard will demonstrate her skills and techniques in Sgraffito and Mishima in the pottery. This demo is open to all members and is free. In less than two weeks it will be Kirkcaldy Art Club's Open Weekend and Annual Exhibition. This offers members a chance to display their hard work, paintings, pottery, glass, jewellery, cards , notebooks and other craft items. There are activities for children in the pottery and coffee, tea and home baking in the painting studio. Although this term is almost finished there is a programme of 'summer school' classes which will begin from mid April. These include, painting, painting with mixed media, outdoor sketching and painting, pottery and printing. They are also open to non members, so, if anyone is interested in trying out any of these classes please get in touch to find out more about them. Information will also be on our Facebook page, and on our website kirkcaldyartclub.co.uk or from Morag Allan on 01592 267641. Hot Pot Kids Art, our children's class, will be starting the next block of classes for children again from Monday 22nd April until Monday 10th June, missing out the two Monday holidays, 6th May and 3rd June. The cost for the six weeks is £30 and includes tuition and all materials will be provided.
Our craft group recently had a visit from Beth Snaddon, she showed everyone how to do weaving at small scale. Beth was great in explaining the process and she brought lots of beautiful colours of yarn to choose from.
Everyone enjoyed it a lot. Below are some photos from the workshop.
