East Sussex Arts Club

AT this month’s club meeting we were treated to a lovely and very lively demonstration of charcoal drawing.

The subject was a rose and given by John Hoffman who was so good that even those of us who hate the feel of charcoal have been encouraged to have a go.

Hopefully he will be back next year to do a workshop.

John comes from Romney Marsh and has only been drawing for about three years, his proper job being a restorer of historic buildings and barn conversions.

The winner of The Carnival painting competition was Gill Metcalfe. The Artist of the Month was Jenny Thompson.

The next meeting is a workshop, Painting Realistic Glass, and is on September 14, starting at 10.30am at St John’s Church Hall, Brittany Road. St Leonards.
