2017 is just over the horizon.
New Year’s Resolutions – who’d have them? How do you make sure they last beyond January 3rd? In my household we are busy with plans and resolutions with varying degrees of probable success. Here are some Measham thoughts – going to more exhibitions, being a bit tidier, less chocolate (yeah yeah) and some of us want to be more rigorous about painting and drawing EVERY DAY.
So many plans. Good.
‘Keep busy, keep trying new things, and learning new skills, join groups of people doing things they enjoy doing’
The Mantra for 2017 (no mention of chocolate)
We have lots of classes on offer. Some are one off chances to try something new, others are like putting on something comfortable. There are some short courses and some things that will last all year. As the year goes on new classes will be offered so keep an eye on the website.
There are classes at Wherwell Priory Studio, the Riverside Yurt Café (and its winter quarters) and at Rum’s Eg in Romsey.
For more information about times, costs etc click this link:
The River Test will be the subject of a year long investigation, (The River Test, Source to Sea, A Journey) and there will be a weekly instagram drawing for anyone to join.
January classes are as follows:
Monday, 9th Jan, Seeds, Shells, Stones and Skulls, at Wherwell Priory
Wednesday, 11th Jan, River Test, Source to Sea, a Journey, at Overton
Sunday, 15th Jan, Size Matters, at Rum’s Eg, Romsey
Wednesday, 18th Jan, Just Painting, at Wherwell Priory
Wednesday 25th Jan, Crash Course in Oil Painting, at Riverside Yurt Cafe, (Winter Quarters)
Other classes to look out for – more information soon:
Upcycle Dolls and Stuffed Toys. Give new life to old toys (yours, a loved one’s, or from a charity shop) Turn them into monsters, fantastic creatures, or something altogether more avant-garde. This is not designed as a dolls hospital; more Frankenstein revisited with plastic surgery.
Time; Ephemeral, Past and Present. A photo can capture a moment but how can we approach time passing, and time passed?
Russian Doll Painting. Mess with tradition. Instead of a Matryoshka with head scarf and flowery pinafore create a nest of dolls with a story, maybe a family history, your own hidden characteristics, secrets and aspirations. Or animals, bugs, skeletons, muscles, or your last three meals…endless possibilities.
