1st & 3rd Wednesday
Sheep Street Baptist Church
Leader: Barbara Bailey; Nigel Featherstone
This friendly group is for anyone, from beginner to expert, who would like to improve or refresh their drawing skills, experiment with different techniques and mediums, or just enjoy practising in the company of like-minded people.
The Group has ceased meeting due to the Coronavirus epidemic, but Nigel is continuing to set us tasks to draw by email and we have set up a group Facebook page so people can keep in touch and post the results of their efforts, if they wish to do so.
We meet each month except August. Meetings are held at Sheep Street Baptist Church except in June and July when we venture outdoors to various locations in and around Devizes or a little further afield, in search of interesting subjects. The charge for meetings is £1.50 including refreshments, no charge when we go out and about (we usually make sure there is a cafe in the vicinity!)
We aim to have a varied programme of topics based on suggestions by group members, and we use objects, natural forms, and people (ourselves!) or sometimes photographs and pictures as subjects for our drawing. We also have a small but comprehensive library which is available for group members to borrow from or use for reference.
The group is full at present but anyone interested in joining may be placed on a waiting list. Please contact the group leaders as above by telephone (see newsletter for details) or by email: .
