Critique Night gives a chance to have helpful and valuable appraisal of your completed works by one of our leading artists or by a visiting professional artist. This provides a great opportunity to learn what makes a painting “tick” and how to correct or improve a painting. Bring along two or three works. Even of you don’t bring a painting for appraisal you can still learn from the comments made on others’ works.
Works done in a tutorial or workshop or otherwise under instruction cannot be critiqued.
A separate panel of members judge the works on the night. Two certificates, Critique Night Award and Critique Night Encouragement Award are issued to members.
On Swap Night, members bring along a painting of their own, to swap with another member. Paintings are small, eg 8 inches by 10 inches, framed or unframed.The painting is given a number and each member is issued a separate number. Tickets are drawn out of a hat so no-one knows whose painting they will get to take home. You may receive the work of a highly esteemed artist!
Learn the techniques used by professional artists to create unique works of art. Each session will be for a duration of 1.5 hours.
This is a guided hands-on experience so bring your painting gear.
A complete demonstration, from blank canvas to finished work, by an experienced artist on how to paint. Various mediums and styles.
Sit back and watch and learn.
Members do their own thing, painting what they like. More experienced members give guidance, if requested, to less experienced members. It is a lot of fun and a good social outlet to maintain your mental well-being in these pandemic times.
