Greenock Art Club are holding a coffee morning to raise money for the humanitarian effort in Ukraine. We are asking members to donate a small piece of art or craft to sell on the day. Alternatively, you may prefer to donate an item for either of two ‘Hampers’ which will be raffled on the day. There is a food hamper and a toiletries hamper. Boxes will be left in the clubhouse where you can leave your donation. Entry will be a donation of £1.50/£2 which will entitle visitors to tea/coffee and cakes/ sandwiches. Everyone is welcome to help out by manning stalls and serving teas. Please encourage friends and family to come along!
Fancy improving your drawing skills? Interested in drawing from life? Why not come along to our life drawing classes in the Stables Studio, Broomberry Drive? Classes run fortnightly and start on Thursday 24th February. Sessions are currently £5 and open to members. Any non-members are welcome to come along and ‘give it a try’ before committing to full membership.
Please contact Doris Walker firstname.lastname@example.org before attending, to be sure of a place or to find out more about the classes.
The Christmas Exhibition of work will be on the weekends of 27/28 November and 4/5 December with opening times of 12noon to 5pm each day. There will be a selection of original art and crafts for sale. More details for members will be in the club soon.
The club will be open to members of the public on Saturday 11 and Sunday 12 September between 12 noon and 5pm both days. There will be a selection of Artists work on display featuring painting and crafts. There will also be at least 2 artists working on their latest work during these times. Everyone is welcome to come along and have a chat with our artists.
Subject to Government confirmation on 20 April 2021, the club will once again re-open on the above date. There will still be limited numbers in the club at one time (no more than 8) and the wearing of face masks is compulsory indoors. It is important that everyone cleans their work station before leaving and that your personal rubbish is taken away after each visit. Last year we did not collect any membership fees because the club was only open for a few months on a restricted basis. This year, the membership fees will be halved to £25 as we are still under restrictions. Fees can be paid by cheque (Payable to ‘Greenock Art Club’) or Cash which can be left with one of the trustees on your next visit.
We are all looking forward to getting back to some sort of normality.
