Ashby Art Club have a couple of events planned for the run up to Christmas.
Monday evening the 12th Dec the club will be having its Christmas Quiz and Fuddle, this is a fun night testing our knowledge on art, artists and any other aspect of art that takes Alan Betteridges fancy to test us on. After all that brainwork we are ready for a festive supper and some mulled wine. I hope you can all come along and lend your brains and appetite to the evening.
Wednesday morning the 14th of December we are planning to paint Christmas cards to exchange at the end of the morning, here are some ideas from gift tags painted earlier.
Coffee tea and warm mince pies will be served during the morning to help your Christmas painting ideas.
I hope to see as many of you at these events as possible.
Our Twitter account
At the AGM it was decided to improve our publicity especially for the Easter Exhibition. Part of that was to engage more with social media. With that in mind we now have a Twitter account that can be found on @AshbyArtClub.
Twitter is a service for people to stay connected through the exchange of quick, frequent messages. People post Tweets, which may contain photos, videos, links and up to 140 characters of text.
If you are a Twitter member please look at the account and we would welcome you to 'follow'.
In mid September some of the club members and tutors provided a new art exhibition at the Castle Medical centre, Ascebi House, Burton Road, Ashby replacing the successful Ashby Camera Club photographic exhibition, which has been running over the summer. The Art Club also displays paintings at the North Street surgery in Ashby, click on the Dr Sheperds Exhibition tab for more information.
