tutors with proven reputations will be commissioned to lead the workshops, we shall keep the cost of each as low as possible – mostly less than half that normally charged for similar events.

 

 

 

We aim to hold one day workshops every few months, depending on demand.  Workshops will usually run from 10 am to 4pm, and will take place in Bishops Cannings village hall, where there is ample parking and good facilities.  Bishops Cannings is a small village on the northern outskirts of Devizes, about three miles from the centre.

Although onlyAs the number of participants is usually limited to 12 LSA members, each of the workshops run this year has been oversubscribed – so I’d advise you to book your place early if you see one you would like to attend.

If any LSA member has an idea for an interesting/informative workshop, please email me at Margaret.hanson@hotmail.com  I’ll ascertain if there is enough interest amongst the membership for me to find a suitable tutor to lead one and set it up as soon as I can.

See below previous workshops we have organised.

Stephen Pierce Smiths

Improve your drawing skills workshop 

The workshop “Improve your drawing skills” on March 1st run by a new member Stephen Pierce- Smith, was a great success and well attended. Stephen taught a new skill to members, using a sharp pencil point in sketching animals hair and fur. Also how to improve our drawing by looking for ‘negative’ spaces in still life; which stretched most members. A good teacher, members attending appreciated his calm, clear directions and examples, especially as this gave them more ideas and courage to embolded their own work.
The following workshop in May 16th , will also be run by a society member, Simon Bishop, who will be tutoring an acrylic workshop on painting animals, suitable for all levels.

Catherine Beale

Gravity painting workshop

On Thursday 15th November  Catherine Beale, a local artist and  member of the society of women artists ran a gravity painting workshop for 10 members. Catherine had given an excellent demonstration to the members in September and she was back again to give us lots of hints and tips on how to use gravity to achieve some interesting effects with watercolour.
