Art Break in Exmoor with Hashim Akib

Hashim is running an acrylic workshop from the 10- 13th May

Fuss-free Acrylics with Hashim Akib

10 – 13 May 2018

Discover fuss-free painting in acrylics, with Hashim Akib, using large, expressive brushstrokes, less obsessive drawing and multiple colour mixing directly on the canvas.

Themes will vary everyday, including landscapes, portraits, and with each subject you will discover new, contemporary approaches to drawing and painting. Whether you are a beginner or more advanced painter you will be guided all the way with short demonstrations and plenty of one-to-ones. So if you would like to discover how to mix ten colours on one brush this is the course for you!

The workshop runs from 4pm Thursday to 2pm Sunday with daily tuition all day Friday and Saturday, and half day Sunday.

London Trip- National Gallery-Monet & Architecture, Saturday June 9th

Clevedon Art Club are organising a trip to the National Gallery, London on Saturday June 9th

to see the exciting exhibition: “MONET AND ARCHITECTURE”

 There’s never been a single exhibition looking at Monet’s career through the buildings he painted: in Normandy, in Rouen, in Paris, London and Venice. From buildings in villages and by the coast, to some of Europe’s most famous monuments, Monet painted the architecture of his time – modern, historic and grand.

This is a new way of looking at Monet’s work.  With 75 paintings shown together for the first time, it shows how he used architecture to create his compositions, both in his most famous paintings and lesser known works. 

Our travel to London will be in a 32-seater coach with pick-ups in Nailsea and Clevedon. Entry to the exhibition depends on our acquiring time tickets which, based on our expected arrival in London by about 12 noon, need to be obtained from 12.30pm onwards.  We are advised by the National Gallery that the later we leave it the fewer time tickets are likely to be available and so we need to establish firm interest, backed by payment, as soon as possible and no later than 10th April.  

The cost will be £20 for the coach (including driver’s tip) and £22 for entry to the exhibition. The coach will leave London at 4.30pm. All welcome to join the group, with no obligations to visit the exhibition.

Contact mail@clevedonartclub for joining details.
