Workshops, sketching sessions and evening meetings
Our annual programme consists of a varied series of talks, workshops and exhibitions. Evening meetings are held at 7.30pm on the last Thursday of the month at Herne Farm Leisure Centre, Petersfield, GU31 4PY. These are free for members. Visitors are welcome and pay £2 at the door.
Saturday workshops are held at Liss Triangle Community Centre from 10-4. Please contact Kim Archer through the Workshops page to request more information. Online booking will open once all members have received their new packs for 2018-19. These sessions are also open to non-members.
Sketching sessions are listed below and will start at 10am. Please check your newsletter for more information about venues as some of these are in the private gardens of our members. Our organiser Sarah will be present to welcome members and their friends and will remain in the car parking area (where relevant) for about ten minutes, before joining the rest of the artists. Sessions will continue until lunch-time, though people can of course stay longer if they wish. Please come suitably equipped with art materials, seats, warm clothes, suntan cream etc. To contact Sarah please use the general contact form.
