May/June NEWS


Thank you to everyone who came to and/or helped at the Art & Craft Show at the weekend. It was small but beautifully formed! If you put up a poster for us, please make sure it is taken down again, although I think the majority of them disappeared in the high winds and heavy rain.
 
Anne-Claude Down's winning entry
 
COMPETITION
For anyone who missed the announcement, the winner of the annual Art Competition (Farm Animals or Bluebells) was Anne-Claude Downs with her painting "I can see you". Congratulations to Anne-Claude who wins the £25 prize.
If you have any suggestions for a theme for next year, let me know - perhaps 'Scene in Sussex'?

Your next chance to enter a competition is 29th May when we will choose our June calendar image. Attend the art session and bring your entry (preferably unframed) for us to vote for the winner during the evening.
ART SESSIONS
7-9pm, Arlington Village Hall

NOTE: There will be no meeting this week, 15th May, as there is a Parish Council meeting in the hall.

Our demonstration/workshop on May 22nd will  be with Teresa Currie, who will be doing pen and ink architectural drawings. Teresa will give a demo for 20 mins then it's our chance to have a go. We will need watercolour paper, watercolours, pens, ink - I don't know about brushes, but bring some in case.
£5 per person (£2.50 with a loyalty card with 4 points)
 
Our suggestions for inspiration for the next few sessions are:
29 May - Gordon Benningfield
5 Jun - Basil Ede
12 Jun - Heath Robinson 
19 Jun - Arthur Rackham
After this we need some more suggestions...
