A Very Arty Christmas

We had a wonderful Christmassy workshop session with our friend and guest artist, Liz Woodcock today, creating our own versions of a church scene that she had drawn for us.  Dressed appropriately in our colourful crimbo jumpers we all set to work with different mediums and, as you can see from the images below, managed to produce a varied selection of artworks before tucking in to a yummy buffet lunch.

With that another successful and joyful year for the group comes to a close and we take this opportunity to wish all our members, friends, and followers a very merry Christmas, and a wonderful and peaceful new year.


Wishing you all a Merry Christmas from all the members of Sutton Art Group



Picture perfect

Quite a quiet session today, with several people away for various reasons.  It was a ‘do your own thing’ day, so we all just got on with our own creations whilst having the usual good chat and banter.

One particular topic was the latest series of the ‘Great Painting Challenge’ currently showing on the BBC on Sundays.  Most of us agreed that the standard of work produced during the competition days wasn’t necessarily representative of the work that the participants had been doing in their own time at home, and none of us would want the time restrictions or ‘mentor’ breathing down our necks while we work!

Proving that our members can produce most excellent work, Chris Locke presented David Mowthorpe with a portrait he’d produced from a sketch he’d drawn whilst David was speaking last week.  It’s captured his lively style perfectly, but Chris has asked that he wears a plain shirt next time!!
