From Our Members


Chris Horrocks

Featuring artist, Margaret Newlands

During the lockdown we are travelling the world through our drawing. As our class is driven by its class members, we have been conducting lessons via email. For example the lesson with instructions and photo/picture to copy from is emailed to the class by the leader and the class is encouraged to photograph their work and email it back to the leader who then sends everyone’s artwork out via email.

The artwork shown here is by the artist, Margaret Newlands, featuring gum leaves and is a watercolour.  Margaret recently celebrated her 90th birthday.

Margaret frequently shares her expertise and talent with the class which is very much appreciated by everyone. We all try to aspire to Margaret’s excellence.
