 Regular Art Sessions at Arlington Village Hall, 7-9pm. £5 (£2.50 AAG members).

We have a monthly theme which you can use for inspiration or ignore if you like! I have suggested looking at the works of particular artists. Perhaps find an image by that artist and paint your own version or paint your own picture in the style of that artist, or just let yourself be inspired by that era or genre. 

Artist for inspiration in February:  Henri Matisse
Feb 5th Regular session & competition week*
Feb 12th Regular session
No session at the hall on 19th Feb - SEE BELOW
Feb 26th Seminar on Art History with Susanne Lawrence. £5 (or £2.50 for AAG members with active loyalty card), bring your laptop if you have one to watch the DVD provided. PLEASE LET US KNOW ASAP IF YOU WILL BE ATTENDING AND IF YOU CAN BRING A LAPTOP so that Susanne can ensure she has the right number of DVDs.
