Free Online Art Demonstration for the club on Zoom

 


We are in talks with Janet Forry about her giving us an art demonstration online on Zoom. It will consist of two 40 minute parts with a break in between. There has been a good response and many people have put their name down. If you are interested please email Glenda. We have still to discuss a date and subject matter but will let you know as soon as these are decided.


Now for something different! We thought we could make an online art club Advent calendar this year. It's not difficult and takes little time. All you need to do is to draw a 4"x 4 " square or draw round a square coaster. You then draw a simple Christmas object and colour it in using pencils, markers, watercolours etc and then email it to us. Objects could be baubles, snowman, holly, tree, angel, etc. Here is a rough idea of a Christmas pudding. It's done with colouring pencils and a felt tip. We can reveal a picture each day during December.   

Please send your picture before
 23rd November.

 

Let`s go to Boston!

 

This week we`re off to Boston where we will visit the Museum of Fine Art there. There is a short video which takes you round the Museum which has a fine collection of paintings by the Impressionists. The MFA give frequent talks and you can watch and listen to a really interesting one on the Impressionists.

The Impressionists Gallery

 

The Impressionists in the Museum of Fine Arts

 

Here is a very interesting, illustrated talk about the Impressionists in the Gallery. It's a one hour long video but really worth watching for all the information and insight into how the Impressionists worked.

Banksy's "Show me the Monet" painting sells for £7.5 million at auction.

 


This painting reimagining Monet's Waterlilies surpassed all expectations at Sotheby's event two weeks ago and sold for £7.5 million!  Banksy created it in 2005 and added a shopping trolley and traffic cone to the famous iconic scene. The painting is a reflection of life today where there is a disregard for nature in favour of the excesses of modern day consumerism.
