The next meeting is June 8th 1pm at the Glenfield Memorial Hall, Hall Road, Glenfield.
The most exciting news for the Society since it was formed 5 years ago arrived at the May meeting. We are now the proud owners of 10 screens which we can use for exhibiting our members' paintings anywhere in Auckland. These screens will display up to 40 paintings and will first be used at the Takapuna Library next month when we have our next exhibition (see separate notice).
These screens have been paid out of the Society's accumulated funds which have largely come from amateur members. If members know of other opportunities for us to mount exhibitions where they can be used, please contact Joanne Mortimore.
The May meeting was our second(?) workshop meeting. It was very successful thanks to the preparation and presentations by President Dennis, Roy Boston and Kathie Shaw. The theme was "how to draw and paint people and featured a real live model posing in various 'gesture' poses." Fantastic. We learned of PROKO, a website (proko.com) and featured on youtube (simply type in proko and the first 4 pages refer to Stan Prokopenko who has a library of videos on "how to draw...").
We have a Saturday workshop with Dennis Clark on 4 July at the Glenfield Hall and two more later in the year.
Cheers for now and happy painting
