Art Group Leader - Alan Chaston

The art group is held every Tuesday afternoon during term time. We have a group of about 12 regular artists with varying skills and abilities. The aim is is to enjoy art, but also to improve and learn new techniques from each other.

Improving drawing and painting skills by working with subjects from life and photographs is very important, and over the weeks we’ve looked at various elements such as colour blending, tone and texture, perspective and shadows.

It’s been enjoyable seeing the group develop and put their abilities into projects such as “This is me”.

We hope to have an exhibition in Eymet during Autumn/Winter, it was very pleasing to see the quality of the work for our stand at Jubilee Fête.

Art Group exhibition 2018

The ACFAA Art Group had an exhibition at the Café des Arts in Eymet for the whole of the month of February 2018. About a dozen members of the group exhibited over two dozen works in various media, mostly pastels and watercolours. We had a very successful vernissage on the first Sunday and the Café was jam packed with people very interested to see what we do every Tuesday.
