Figures on a beach

Last week HAS member Janet Gledhill led the session ‘Figures on a beach’. She gave very useful advice, displayed a vast collection of beach photos and magazines and even had thought of tracing paper. So we all worked hard and enjoyed the morning thoroughly.

From the 26th July to 9th August there will be an alternative programme, as All Saints Parish Hall will undergo some renovations. On the 26.7. we will meet at the usual time 10:30 – 1 pm, but at the Skircoat Green Allotments for Outdoor Sketching.


Landscape workshop

On Friday 21st June, members of the Halifax Art Society met at ‘All Saints Parish Hall’ in Skircoat Green at the usual time of 10:30 for a working session ‘Landscape in any Medium’.

The results are amazing and tell of their talents.

The Hall will be closed July 22nd till August 12th for renovations and an alternate programme is published on our website.


Demonstration by Phil Biggs

It was a pleasure last Friday morning to welcome artist Phil Biggs to the Halifax Art Society in the All Saints Parish Hall at Skircoat Green. Phil had travelled all the way from Lincolnshire to demonstrate his watercolour technique.

It was mesmerizing to watch how easy it seemed to be for him to create even fog rising in the hills. When Phil added shadows and a dab of darker colour in the foreground we were surprised how it gave distance to the houses in the background.
