Winter Programme 2021 - 2022

The Society plans to start the Winter Programme from 7th September 2021 subject to any guidelines or recommendations in place at that time.  Any such guidelines will be published on our website and sent to Members nearer to the start date.

These sessions are on Tuesday evenings from 7.30pm to 9.30pm at Cowbridge Hall, Cowbridge, Hertford SG14 1PG.  Approximately half the evenings in the Winter Programme are for Members to paint or draw either from still life arrangements or a life model. The remaining evenings are taken up with talks, critiques of paintings brought along by Members, demonstrations from a professional artist or workshops.

Visitors are welcome to enjoy the non-practical evenings (marked with an asterisk).

Saturday Life Workshops will recommence on 25th September 2021 and non-Members are welcome - see details on Life Workshops below.  The Members’ Show will be held from 28th to 31st October 2021.
