Well weren’t we lucky that horrific thunder storm arrived just in time for the “summer” bank holiday weekend! The ceiling fell in at Chris’s work and now the whole office smells of wet dog – nice. All of that notwithstanding, hope you all had a good long weekend and your sketching muscles are suitably rested!
As ever, we deliver last week’s sketches along with a friendly nudge to come along to next Wednesday’s session, 7.30pm on 5th September at the usual venue – any newbies can click here for full details. It’s good to see people building on the previous class and getting stuck in with more colours and materials.
And for anyone who hasn’t checked it out yet, the Cultural Olympiad runs until 16th September, culminating with We Face Forward: A West African Festival at Piccadilly Gardens on Saturday 15th September from 1 – 6pm. We’ve enjoyed the exhibition so far, especially the Thursday Lates at the Manchester Gallery which we very much hope the gallery keeps up after the festival. We’ll be heading down on Saturday 15th, fingers crossed for the weather! Hope to see some of you there, we might arrange a meet-up if enough people want to go – give us a shout in the tea break next week.
