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.

U3A – Watercolour Tutorials by Tony Burke

Watercolour tutorials

Tony Burke, Huddersfield U3A, has run a watercolour class for many years but in March it was cut short. He undertook to complete the course, for those that were interested, via YouTube and has just posted lesson number 26. Tony is really happy to share these with U3A members across the movement.

They are really great tutorials to follow, watch them here.
