Group Feature: Art Practical
Firstly a photograph of a local scene was cut into 25 small, match-box size, pieces. Then members took one of these pieces and had to recreate the image thereon as an A4 size water colour painting. They were not shown the whole picture, only seeing the small piece they had taken and did not see progress of "The Collage Project", only the result when all 25 sections had been completed. Most members painted more than one piece.The resulting Collage , which is a picture of "St. Lawrence Church from the Swing Bridge" is now on public display at The Hub ( Hungerford Library ).
Over 20 groups are now up and running. Please visit the Groups page to see the latest information. However, in these difficult times not many are able to meet - other than by video link. If you haven't discovered Zoom we suggest you investigate, even if it's only for communicating with friends and family. For a FREE video conferencing App that is easy to use (and safe now that they have fixed some security issues) it is remakable.
Meanwhile - this may look like a social distancing exercise but, regretably, the table-tennis balls keep bridging the gap.
We regret to inform you that BARN DANCES are now cancelled until further notice owing to the coronavirus health concerns.
Group Feature: Motoring Matters
