West Lothian 50+ Network – Art Group 2

Art Group 2
Group Leader: Ray Langston
Meet: Monday 2 – 4pm at the Bathgate Partnership Centre

We are a self-help group, enjoying some creative painting and sketching together.
From time to time we have the help of an art tutor or demonstrator, to inspire,
encourage and develop our artistic skills.

Maybe you have not painted since you were at school or you have always wanted to have a go at some art. Well, you won’t know what you can achieve until you try. So we are definitely the group for you.

The materials used by our members are many and varied – pencil, pastel, watercolour, acrylic, oil, etc. It depends on what their favourite is, or if they have a wish to experiment with something new. Anything goes! Subject matter is individual choice, be it still life, landscape, portrait, abstract or whatever inspires.

There is plenty of encouragement and support within the group, and guidance from
those who have had previous training or experience.

A smock and black beret are obligatory. No, only joking.
