Sale time! Save £50 on any painting

It’s sale time! For the month of November: £50 off any painting – that’s a third off those currently priced at £150.

 

Why have a sale?

Work is due to start soon to provide wheelchair access to Beacon House, so all my artwork will be taken down and packaged for the duration of the works.

 

When are we re-opening?

We hope the refurbishment will be complete in time for re-opening at Easter 2017.

Meanwhile, if you would like to buy a painting at a reduced price, contact me here.

A 50% deposit will secure any painting.

Back to classes!

Yes, the Salcombe Art Club Summer exhibition is over, we’ve had the SHAF Arts trail and, for many of us artists, it’s back to classes for the winter months.

To attend, you need to be a member of Salcombe Art Club. Lay membership costs only £12 per annum.

 

Vacancies on Salcombe Art club classes

Classes are arranged each term and you’ve missed the official signing up for the Autumn term. However, there are spaces on these two courses:

  • The Enjoyment of Drawing with Jennifer Johnson (Code: JJD)
    Mondays: October 31, November 7, 14, 21, 28, December 5. Cost £105
    Each week a different subject will be explored through the subtleties of pen, ink, charcoal, pencil, crayon, pastel and watercolour.
    Jennifer is a well-known local tutor and with her skill, enthusiasm and guidance there’s always more to learn. All abilities are welcome.
    Contact: Jennifer Johnson jjohnson.modbury@gmail.com or Tel. 01548 830747
  • Oil painting with Ian Carr  (Code: ICT) Cost £70
    Tuesday evenings: October 4 – December 6, 7 – 9 pm (10 weeks)
    Ian’s fun-packed courses are popular with people at all levels. Oil paint is a forgiving medium and ideal for anyone who has limited experience of paint; it builds confidence and invites experimentation. Ian is a very experienced Salcombe based artist who loves teaching and sharing his enthusiasm. This course is suitable for the experienced, not so experienced and the absolute beginner. You will need your own materials.
    Contact: Ian Carr to book or to ask questions. ianfcarr@btinternet.com or Tel. 01548 854211 www.ian-carr.com

 

What classes do I attend?

I attend Michael Hill’s watercolour/acrylic class on a Tuesday and the full-day oil class with Ian Carr on a Friday. It’s a great opportunity to meet with fellow artists and enjoy their company while learning more and more techniques.

 

Where are the classes held?

All classes are in the Loft Gallery, the home of Salcombe Art Club.  The Loft Gallery is situated behind the Fortescue Inn, and above a popular shoe shop, on a delightful footpath called Victoria Quay. And, Low Tide at Fishermans Cove – the featured image above – is the view from Victoria Quay.

 

See you there?

I can thoroughly recommend attending classes at Salcombe Art Club between now and when next year’s Exhibition open at Easter time. See you there!

Affordable art
