This year's programme of Summer sketching is underway. Because the inclement weather of the last few years this year's programme is slightly different. Some of the dates have been arranged at All Saints Church Schoolroom in Mumbles. There is free parking with toilet and kitchen facilities. If the weather is poor, activities e.g. still life, sketching in the church, portraiture etc will take place in the hall and if the weather is fine the hall can be used as a base.
Travelling towards Mumbles, turn right off Mumbles road, up Church park Lane opposite the bowling green, and then immediately right in throught he church gate.
The remaining dates are:
Friday 5th July at the church Hall; Saturday 6th July at the King Arthur Hotel, Reynoldston
Saturday 10th August again at All Saints.
All meetings start at 1 p.m.
Our Painting Together programme at Hazel Court, Sketty, continues each Weds and Saturday until the 20th of July. Weds 1p.m. till 4p.m. ; Saturday 9 a.m. to noon.
Our final scheduled meeting of the 2012 Summer Programme is on Saturday, 25th August, and it takes the form of a one-day Members' Art Fair, at the Ostreme Centre, Oystermouth, Mumbles from 10am onwards.
Members have already booked their tables and a wide range of their arts & craft will be offered for sale. We are hoping for a lot of visitors from the general public, as this is a Bank Holiday weekend, which traditionally is one of the busiest of the summer.
All members are welcome - we hope that you will support the event and do some outdoor sketching in the near vicinity or some portraiture demonstrations within the Centre itself.
A tea, coffee and cakes stall is being run by volunteer members. The session lasts until around 4pm.
Our first scheduled meeting for Outdoor Sketching is on Saturday, 30th June, at Clyne Gardens, Blackpill, Swansea.
We meet around 1pm at the lower entrance, which is a short walk from the main car park.
This venue was chosen as members will have easy access to all sorts of sketching opportunities at this picturesque location, with rare plants, landscape gardens and flowers in abundance within the park and the Swansea Bay foreshore easily reachable on foot.
