C1 Still Life - Any Subject
(Pencils, Watercolour, Coloured Polychrome or Inktense)
C2 Sea Birds and Habitat
During the first part of the evening we are delighted to say Ian Lacey of 'Love from the Artist' will be giving a presentation on 'Preparing Art for the Digital Age' covering areas such as bleed, resolution etc.
He will share with us also the benefits of registering with LFTA (visit their website to find out more) and their association with the SAA.
We will then break for coffee followed by our scheduled Critique Event when we invite you to bring along a piece of your choice to receive informal but constructive feedback from your fellow artists. Invariably provokes some interesting discussion!.
Pleasure certainly to be found in both subjects;
