Some of our members’ work from our workshop on the 24th January on the subject of ‘migration’.
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.
Finding an abandoned wren’s nest in Lynda Thomas’ allotment shed gave us the inspiration for last Friday’s workshop. Lynne Hickin and Lynda showed examples of traditional paintings and more contemporary images. With spring in the air we worked enthusiastically and tried different media.
On the 22nd March Mark Burgum will lead a workshop ”Drawing Trees’.
The Friday meeting of the Halifax Art Society was very challenging. No pencil and paper, no brush and paint but a glue gun, ‘bits and pieces’ and some work from our recent ‘marbling session’.
Our demonstrator for the morning was Sue Cordingley who gave us a brief talk on ‘Mudlarking and Beachcombing’. A demonstration of what to do with your finds followed. Showing us pictures of her work jogged us into thinking ‘yes I could do something like that’. It was amazing how one thought led to another and we all came away with creative work that held memories of the past.
On the 16th February we are going to complete our assemblages.
