There was a record turnout of members at the self-help workshop yesterday in Bishopthorpe. Twenty four members turned up at the recent workshop on Saturday 21 January. There were paintings in all mediums including oil, gouache, watercolour and pastel and it was fascinating to see the variety of genres and skills.
Looking forward to seeing the finished pieces at the De Grey Rooms exhibition on Monday 10 April (which is only just around the corner). Full details and entry form in the February Newsletter launched at the next Artist Demonstration on Saturday 11 February.
