Hatfield painting group seeks new faces
PUBLISHED: 16:00 18 November 2018
An amateur art group who have been in Hatfield for at least 20 years are looking for more creative people to join them.
The club, Painting for Pleasure, meets at the Birchwood Leisure Centre every Monday from 2pm to 4pm.
Club member Kathleen Hewson, 76, said: “We want anyone who wants to paint - anyone who wants to spend a couple of hours to do whatever painting they want to do.”
The club was set up after its members took part in a Chinese brush painting course together.
However, the club members are worried about numbers and are seeking new blood to join their ranks. “We’ve been going for 20-odd years, and it’s dwindling,” said Kathleen. “What with age, and people moving away from the area. But we want to keep it going.”
Painting for Pleasure members explore various styles and methods of painting and welcome all ages and painting styles.
Yvonne Walsingham, who has been retired for 35 years, is the coordinator for the art group.
All members of the group are retired, however anyone can join.
If you would like to join, call 01707 263252.
