Art Group Meeting
Saturday 28 May 10am – 12 noon
You may remember that we had the first Art Group meeting before Christmas so it’s high time we had another one.
This time we will be using watercolours to create simple yet effective abstract designs that you can use later to create your own home-made greeting cards, thank you notes and beautiful artwork.
If you’re not an artist, don’t worry – these designs were made from a simple idea using repeated shapes. You’ll be shown how, with different finishes, you can use the same pattern to create a variety of designs.
