Poole & East Dorset Art Society
Thursday sessions
7th March

Sadly Penny Wilton, who was due to demonstrate materials & techniques to us on the theme of Erosion, is not well enough to take this Thursday's session as planned.
Instead there will be a slide presentation to give an idea of the breadth of possibilities for 'Erosion'.
We also ask individuals to please bring along materials of your choice.. paint, charcoal, collage (glue sicissors etc) whatever you choose.. and prepare to create artwork to the stimuli we will provide.
Future Thursday sessions ...

3rd March:

Alexander Technique and Art

Valerie Willets leads a session showing how Alexander Technique can be a powerful tool to optimise your artistic abilities. This session will introduce the principles of the technique and give you practical help as you make your art. We will take the opportunity to explore different ways of using our hands as we work.

single supplement down to £130!
In order to keep the price down and retain breakfast and evening meal, we have changed hotel to Best Western in Portobello. This is not in the heart of Edinburgh but is only 10 minutes by train (twice an hour) to Waverley Station in the centre of Edinburgh. Portobello is a seaside town with a beach and the hotel has a pool and gym.
We still have spaces on the coach so if these new arrangements mean you now wish to join us, please contact Carole Gadsby (carolegadsby@gmail.com) or John Biggs (johnabiggs@ntlworld.com).
Cost at the moment is £495 per person with single supplement of £130, Should we get more people the price will be reduced accordingly.
