Currently, the club hosts two painting groups for members each week but recent circumstances have dictated that, for the time being at least, neither will have a dedicated tutor as host on a regular basis:
Every Monday (from 10 a.m. until midday) there is a pastel group in the club premises which is free of charge to Dunfermline Art Club members. Newcomers to the medium, and more experienced pastellists are very welcome. The group has developed over the years into a more general painting group catering for all levels of expertise. In addition to pastel, other media are covered, in particular mixed media and line and wash.
Also, a watercolour group meets at the club every Wednesday evening from 7 until 9 o’clock. Again, the group does not have a regular tutor, but occasional tutoring (roughly once a month) at a more advanced level is provided by Colin Joyce. A small fee is payable for this. The sessions provide facilities, mutual support and encouragement for enthusiasts of this medium.
Our tuition programme is constantly under review, so members who have suggestions for future tutorials or demonstrations should pass pass details to Jen Manson, who is the club’s Programme Co-ordinator or to another member of the committee giving as much detail as possible. Additionally, If you are an artist who would be willing to hold a workshop or give a demonstration at the club premises, we would be delighted to hear from you. Please feel free to contact us with your details and availability.
