Newsletter – January 2022

Dear Members

We hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and are looking forward to a more normal year full of painting opportunities. We hope you find the new programme interesting and inspiring and look forward to seeing many of you over the course of the year.

First things first…

On the folded copy of the 2022 Programme that I sent out there is an error.
* The Mark Warner workshop is on the 5th March not the 22nd which is a Tuesday!

* Due to unforeseen circumstances the talk and demo by Ann Blockley on Saturday Feb 5th has been cancelled. We hope this may be rearranged at another time.

  • The good news is that we have been able to book Michael Hill for a workshop on the same date Saturday Feb 5th at the Yealmpton Community Centre, from 10am – 4pm.

This workshop, in watercolour or acrylics, is entitled ‘Interiors with a focal point’.
The focal point might be an open window or maybe an interior with a vase of flowers or other still life object.   Full details will be sent in due course.

The Shirley Kirkcaldy workshop on 22nd January has been extremely popular with all the spaces booked and paid for.  We have a waiting list of members who would have liked to attend, therefore if anyone finds they can’t make it, please let us know so the place can be offered to those on the waiting list.

We have been sent a reminder from the Yealmpton Community Centre about the Covid rules,

Please could we bring to your attention that unless exempt and until further notice, the Governments Plan B requires anyone entering, moving around or leaving Community Centres/Parish Halls to wear a face covering.

Please ensure all those who attend your sessions are adhering to this requirement as required.

A very short newsletter this time, but as the Spring approaches and hopefully Covid lightens its grip we may all start to get out and about again. We look forward to seeing you soon.
