MENU THE ARTS SOCIETY KING'S LYNN

Our friendly little art group meets weekly on a Thursday morning in Castle Rising. We have 8 members and paint in all media, from oils, pastels, acrylics and watercolour to pencil sketches and pen and wash.

We started ten years ago as the result of a study day on drawing and a desire by many of those present to continue with their art. We often go out to paint, either around the village, to each other’s homes or to the coast or countryside in summer. We also invite experienced artists to demonstrate for us and have occasional visits to exhibitions in London and elsewhere.

During the last few years the confidence of the group has increased considerably and this is enhanced by the favourable comments from KLDFAS members when we display our efforts at a lecture. The picture shows some of our group at the latest exhibition to celebrate our 10th birthday. So often in life one has an ambition to do ‘something’ when one retires, but lacks the confidence. This group has shown that by mutual support hidden talents can come to the fore and we certainly all look forward to our Thursday morning art group.
