Outdoor Painting and Sketching
Usually, there are around half a dozen of us who meet to sketch in a cafe, or in good weather en plein air. In 2017, we have sketched at Warsash Quay and in the Rising Sun; Gosport; and Porchester Castle. After a good day tehre last year, we will be returning to Bursledon Brickworks Industrial Museum from 11.00am on Thursday 20th July.
Any Group member can organise an outing, be it a coach trip or a more informal / free / turn up on the day trip car sharing. As well as sketching days, there are various galleries and museums in the area within an hour's reach of Warsash, including Southampton City Art Gallery and the SeaCity Museum, Portsmouth Museum, Pallant House and the Oxmarket Centre for Arts, both in Chichester. If you would like to organise something, please get in touch - addresses and phone numbers are on the Programme Booklet.
VISIT TO THE HOUSES OF PARLIAMENT - Monday 18th April 2016
The Group enjoyed a very successful coach trip to the Houses of Parliament on Monday, 18 April 2016, at the invitation of our local MP, Suella Fernandes. She has a keen interest in art and thought we might appreciate the architecture and the art displayed in the Palace of Westminster. We did the be the standard tour with a guide. A big than you to our Prograame Organiser Jane Moody for making it happen.
