* COVID-19 – UPDATE

8 July 2020

Due to the impending severity of the Covid-19 pandemic and government efforts to slow the spread, we have ceased all classes and workshops. We will resume normal  activities as soon as it is safe to do so.

There will be no newsletter this term as things are moving too quickly to keep it relevant and timely.

While everyone is closeted at home we will try to keep your artistic juices flowing with ideas, videos and other activities. Painting and drawing at home is a good distraction from the constant loop of Covid-19 news.  Keep an eye on our website and on your inbox for further details.

Wishing you and you families a safe conclusion to this unprecedented situation.

Dear Members and Friends

Due to the impending severity of the Covid-19 pandemic and government efforts to slow the spread, we have decided to cease all classes and workshops immediately. This is the first time in the Groups history that this has happened. We will resume normal  activities as soon as it is safe to do so.

There will be no newsletter this term as things are moving too quickly to keep it relevant and timely.

While everyone is closeted at home we will try to keep your artistic juices flowing with ideas, videos and other activities. Painting and drawing at home is a good distraction from the constant loop of Covid-19 news.  Keep an eye on our website and on your inbox for further details.

Wishing you and you families a safe conclusion to this unprecedented situation.
