Art practical
The group meets from 10.00am until around 12.30pm on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of each month in The Hub, the library in Hungerford. Most attending work in water colour but all mediums are equally welcome. Please bring your own art materials. A still-life subject is usually displayed for those attendees wishing to tackle it. We are a self help group who are all keen on producing work but we have no structured tuition. A small charge is levied at each attendance to cover the room hire costs (and for tea/coffee/biscuits). In summer months we try to have a few meetings in the open - weather dependent, followed by pub grub.
