Village Art & Literature

First exhibition for art class students

Posted on June 29 2012 at 12:04:19 0 comments

In the December/January edition of The Village magazine I reported on how scary it was to start attending the art class run by Pam McGregor in Alvechurch, writes David Morgan.

But the more I got into it, the more the scary side was replaced with enjoyment and, yes, a sense of achievement, But then, a few weeks ago, “Miss” suggested we should hold an art exhibition – now that IS scary!

Fortunately we beginners will be joined by the “Improvers” class that meets on Thursday afternoons, so the art on display will not be all done by us “first-timers” as there will be some more advanced work as well.

However this exhibition, which will run in Alvechurch Village Hall from August 29 to September 1 (10am until 7pm weekdays and 10am until 5pm on Saturday), will be more than just a display of art.

Visitors will actually have the chance to “try art” for themselves in afternoon workshops that will include using watercolours, acrylics or oils, for a modest cost of £7 for a two-hour session (all materials supplied).

Having tried it, and based on my own experience of Pam’s teaching techniques, there may be a queue to sign up for next year’s beginners’ class!

There will also be refreshments available throughout the day, plus craft work on display as well as the art, and entry to the exhibition is free.

Anyone wanting to book in for one of the art sessions should contact Pam on 07809-236880 or email her at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)
