Hailsham Art Group

 The inaugural meeting of a new Hailsham Art Group will be on the 17th of September at the lovely Gallery North which is just opposite Prezzo's. The Group is the brainchild of local artist Josie Tipler who will lead the meetings. 

Josie specialises in pet portraits, is a Director of Hailsham Creative and is much involved in the Hailsham Arts Festival. She also runs the Arlington Arts Group who have been active in sprucing up Hailsham's empty shop fronts over recent months. As part of the Hailsham Arts Festival, she is leading the Art Of Movement workshop which aims to teach the portrayal of a sense of movement in paintings of fish and birds. The workshop is open to artists of all abilities but it is essential to book your place in advance.

Hailsham Art Group's meetings will consist of tutor-led sessions with the subject and medium of each being published the week before. The intention is to have a half-hour demonstration at the beginning of each meeting, followed by the opportunity for members to work on their own projects, swapping advice and encouragement as they do. All artists are welcome, whatever their level of experience, but everyone will need to bring their own materials and equipment to each session.

The first meeting will be in the afternoon of Monday the 17th September from 14:00 to 16:00. A second meeting is planned for Tuesday evening on the 18th from 18:30 to 20:30 with this pattern of Monday afternoons and Tuesday evenings continuing until the Group becomes too numerous for Gallery North to accomodate. Each session will cost £6.

Hailsham Art Group, Gallery North, Mon 17th Sep, 14:00-16:00, £6.
