Sketchers 

Sketchers the monthly sketching and painting group is no  longer run in association with the Society of Eastbourne Artists but continues to run on the third Saturday of each month at the Towner Gallery from 2:00pm to 4:30pm, usually in Studio 3 on the first floor (subject to change). Everyone is welcome. 

The Stephen Cheeseman workshop in April was very well received with 17 members attending and many of us struggling with an unfamiliar medium (oil pastels) However, despite the angst everyone enjoyed the challenge and Stephen spent time assisting those who were struggling.











MEMBERS EVENTS

Outdoor Sketching & Painting  
(Dates and venues to be confirmed)

   Meet at 10.30am 

On Thursday 13th June Elda Abramson gave a stunning demonstration to our members. 
Although previously  she concentrated on tapestry she now paints
She talked about her inspiration for painting the large, colourful ink (Brusho) flower paintings that are her choice of subject recently.
She achieved an MA in art from East Caroliona University, USA.
She adopted the Zen style of thinking about her subject and studying the subject before she start drawing, which she does without looking at the paper other than to locate the bamboo pen she uses with water soluble ink. She then uses the watered down powder in a similar style to watercolour with vibrant results.
The audience was excited and inspired by the effects of the demonstration and determined to have a go themselves.

The Society of Eastbourne Artists provide a full agenda of events throughout the year which are free to members as part of their annual subscription, unless otherwise stated.
