We are a group of amateur artists who meet on Thursday mornings (9.30 - 12.30) in Codsall Village Hall. Roland Twynam is our tutor.
Modus operandi: everyone "does their own thing" with Roland offering constructive criticism, help, and advice. Occasionally we have a life model and sometimes Roland gives a demo on topics such as perspective, composition, and other elements of creating art that we need to understand. We also learn from each other by discussion, sharing ideas and experiencing different media. A wide range of work is produced using charcoal, pencil, coloured pencil, oil, acrylic, watercolour, oil pastel, chalk pastel, collage, pen and ink.
Our artistic abilities and interests are diverse - an eclectic mix that makes for a stimulating group with Roland at the helm.
The group has been going for a few years now and this website first took shape in September 2015 - it's a matter of "watch this space" to see if and how it evolves.
