Free painting AGM and Jane Lazenby update

The AGM took place today and there may be an update on that later but in the meantime paintings. 

The usual answer to the question , "What is the UKs most popular owl" is usually the Teetowl (tea towel ) or the normal answer or The Tawny owl. Don't quote me on that.

However today's most popular owl was the one that Jane Lazenby did as a workshop last week. 

Here are some of our efforts from last week and today plus a few other paintings

New members appeal

Monk Fryston Art Club

Invites new members

We meet every Monday afternoon between 1:00pm and 4:00pm at Monk Fryston Parish Church Hall. 

You are invited to come along on any Monday to see what we do; perhaps to stay for the afternoon, with no obligation to join.

We have members at every level of skill, from beginners to accomplished artists. We are a friendly group, working in an informal setting, without a tutor, helping each other along with advice and encouragement. 

We use all kinds of media; watercolour, acrylic, oil, pastel, pencil, charcoal, gouache, pen and ink; whatever you like, or want to try.  Some members even use their Monday afternoon to complete craft projects.

Half a dozen times each year we host a different visiting demonstrator, who will usually run a workshop or a paint-along, so that we are all involved, and we can all learn something new. 

If you need more information, contact our President, Jean Dearn on 01977 682611 or email:
