June Elsey's workshop, Staithes.

I wasn't able to take full part today due to work but was able to get along , enjoy a cuppa (as did a certain ape probably) and snap a few photos.
I hope you enjoy them. There is the odd finished painting from previous weeks too, keep bringing these if you can it's great to see the development.

The workshop was an Oil or Acrylic painting of Staithes nr Whitby on the east coast, a lovley part of the country.

June brought two samples along , one in acrylic and one watercolour, both were terrific.

Hopefully we will have some finished ones to show soon.

Olympic Torch Relay

On the 19th May the Olympic Torch will commence it's 70 day journey from Lands End to London whilst reaching 90% of the population of Britain.
It will pass through the Selby district on Tuesday 19th June, it's 31st Day starting at Hull and finishing the day in York.

Along that route it will pass through Monk Fryston.....

As I understand it Monk Fryston Parish council is planning to celebrate this momentous day with a whole host of events.

They are looking for all organisations and or individuals to help out and have invited the Art Club to create a series of paintings celebrating the London Olympic ,the Paralympic Games and the Queens Jubilee.
I believe that we may be asked to hang paintings along the Church wall.

There are all kinds of subjects to choose from such as past host cities, sports stars , Olympic events, Ancient Olympics, The Olympic Torch, Olympic Logo's and of course Queen Elizabeth herself , etc etc.

If you have any ideas please discuss them with the Club president.
