Hepworth Art – August & September 2018

On the first Monday in August our topic was ‘Stunning Sunsets and Beautiful Skies’ and there were plenty of them! Other challenges during August included Windmills and Watermills and a cryptic ‘Feeling Blue’ completed our August sessions. Quite a variety of topics to keep us on our toes!

In September we were delighted to welcome Catherine Bremner (back by popular demand!) who expertly led a workshop on painting animals. We were delighted with the tips and techniques Catherine so generously shared with us. Another Monday, mindful of the Village commemorative day on 11th November ‘Battle’s Over’, we devoted a day to painting artwork that will form part of an overall theme. We are inviting children who attend the art exhibition on 6th and 7th October, to produce artwork to be included in the project.

The Art Exhibition on 6/7th October will soon be upon us! As you can imagine, a lot of planning is involved. There will be over 100 paintings on display both in the Pavilion and in the Church. Delicious refreshments will be available also. The popular Children’s Creativity Corner/space will again feature this year plus a little ‘arty’ quiz that requires observation skills only!.

Just in case you need a reminder! October 7th is nationally designated as ‘Silver Sunday’ – a special day to celebrate our super silver senior citizens . We would be delighted if our Hepworth Silver generation could come along and share with us an hour or two; enjoy some refreshments and take time to talk to friends, neighbours and members of the art club. Please let me know if you need transport. We will be happy to collect you and take you home again. We look forward to seeing you there!
