Group A Session one - 5/5/10

Much bigger turn out today, which was great. We had a good mix of age groups, both under 25's and over 50's. The group worked well together. We had a few students back from Chilton Trinity Technology College and Margaret came again, this time bringing her friend, also called Margaret.
These people were able to help and guide the new people a bit, but also add to their ideas, ready for the next session with them in a fortnight. We began again by drawing and photographing in the garden of the community centre. We were looking at things very close up, observing textures and patterns.

After recording our findings we began to collage our ideas together. A lot of people had not done this before, or if they had, it hadn't been for a long time.
We stopped for a bit of lovely fruit cake , a cuppa, and a natter, then continued on with our art work... looking even more closely. This will help us for next time when we are going to start playing with paint and begin to create designs for the wall panels.

Next session is Friday morning, where we will be doing something very similar just with a different group of people. hoping to have a good mix again. Do get in touch if you are interested in coming along. Again we are looking for over 50's or under 25's.
