Friday Art

We meet at Bemerton Methodist Church, Roman Road, Bemerton SP2 9BH on Friday afternoons 2pm – 4.30pm (or up to 5pm)

Any questions, please contact Jane on 01722 744534 or

All welcome to this regular event. £1 per week inc. tea.


September 1st – Foliage and leaves.  Weather permitting we could work outdoors in the church garden, or bring some leaves as reference.  I’ll also try to bring some examples of how different artists have represented foliage, trees bushes, etc. and we could experiment with mixing greens.  Please bring your own choice of medium.

September 8th – From sketchbook to artwork.  Please bring your sketchbooks, especially if you’ve been able to join in with Salisbury Sketchers or maybe you’ve taken your sketchbook on holiday.  We’ll enjoy looking at each other’s sketches and help each other to work towards producing a painting or other artwork from our sketches.  Your own choice of medium.

September 15th – Skies.  As well as observing what the sky is like this afternoon, we’ll look at different ways of painting/drawing the sky, and refer to the detailed studies that John Constable worked on.  Your own choice of medium.

September 22nd – Autumn Flowers.  Please bring some garden flowers if you can and we’ll work from small arrangements and maybe a larger one, or maybe you’d prefer to paint or draw a single flower.

September 29th – Fabric textures.  I’ll bring a few different types of fabric (and maybe you’ve got something you’d like to bring) and we’ll use each item as a simple still life to try to describe the different textures.

October 6th – Finishing session.  Bring something unfinished to work on.

October 13th – Working on different papers/boards.  I’ll try to bring along some different papers etc for us to try.  Bring your own choice of medium.

October 20th – Fruit.  Please bring something for an individual or small group still life.  Don’t just think oranges and apples, although a spur of apples and leaves from a tree would be great.  Or maybe a bunch of grapes, or a sprig of blackberries or elderberries, or even a pumpkin (there should be plenty of those in the shops right now!).

October 27th – Autumn colours.  We’ll try to create some colourful seasonal work using imagination or reference material.  Again, your own choice of medium.

FORTHCOMING – Salisbury Methodist Church has asked me if Salisbury Group of Artists would like to put some artwork into their Christmas crib/Nativity festival in December.  I hope that further details will be available soon.  In the meantime we could talk over some ideas.
