The Painting and drawing group exists for creative people who seek to explore ideas in painting and drawing within a friendly supportive environment, beginners and those more experienced artists alike.
Suffolk’s Best Thomas Gainsborough and John Constable are two of England’s greatest artists. They were born within 30 miles of each other and only a generation apart. Our study will concentrate on their work set in the context of their lives and contemporary art practice. No need to contact me in advance. Just turn up.
We are a friendly group, interested in trying new crafts as well as sharing ideas and skills to create solo and joint projects.
The group is suitable for mixed abilities, though experience with drawing helps, as work is self-directed. At each session we make observational drawings in cafes and other public spaces, including outdoors, mainly in central Bury St Edmunds.
