Thu, September 9, 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm

This interactive discussion group will feature talks from u3a members who have participated in the u3a paint or draw learning initiative. They will present a few samples of their work.

Are you an art fan who wants to give painting or drawing a go? Are you a beginner in art who wants to develop their confidence and share your experiences with others? Our contributors will be sharing ideas, inspiring others and encouraging people to give art a go.

There will be a question and answer session after the talks for members to discuss their experiences of starting out in art.

While no specific equipment is required, we encourage attendees to have a sketch pad and a pen/pencil to jot things down and get started in art.

Monthly Meetings – Success with Zoom

All the Kingston Monthly Meetings since August have been held on Zoom with members being emailed a link so they can join in.   This has met with great support  nearly reaching the 100 maximum on our Zoom licence in most months. We weren’t completely sure if a few extra might creep in should we hit the magic one hundred well in January we found out it was 100 and no more so several members couldn’t join us.  Consequently at the next Committee meeting after some research we have upped the licence to the next level and unless over 500 of you join us which of course would be magnificent we should be fine!  So see you on 1st Feb to hear Imogen Cunningham speak on the Bayeux Tapestry.

Drawing and Painting Group 2 : Various Media

Drawing and Painting Group 2 meet in the United Reform Church Kingston on a Tuesday afternoon.  We are a happy group of sixteen, mixed ability, mixed gender, but who all have a real love of putting, pen, pencil, brush,  or whatever to paper.  We are lucky enough to have an excellent tutor in Charles Penny, who since joining us some 18 months ago, has breathed new life into our perceptions and given us the enthusiasm to try new things.  We were lucky enough to be able to show our work recently at the CornerHOUSE Theatre in Tolworth and during the course of the exhibition a total of 12 paintings were sold, which was very gratifying.
