Paint and Palette Group are pleased to announce that monthly demonstrations on Saturdays are starting once again.
Our first demonstration after being suspended for so long due to Covid-19, will be this coming Saturday the 16th October 2021. Well known Edenvale artist and teacher, Margaret de Bree, will demonstrate in acrylics on 16 October 2021 from 10.00 to 12.00.
Margaret’s passion for art started when she was only ten years old. With her father’s encouragement, she studied Fine Arts at the Technikon in Bloemfontein. They moved to Edenvale where she worked as a draughtswoman. With her children at school, she took up her brushes again and hasn’t looked back since. In her own words, “I eat, dream and live art.”
Margaret has been teaching art for over 30 years now in all mediums ranging from watercolour, oil, to acrylic and pastel. Many of her students have gone on to be professional artist themselves. She also achieved an Associate from, and been a judge for the Watercolour Society of South Africa. She has taken part in numerous exhibitions all over South Africa and her paintings hang in private collections in Australia, England, Holland and South Africa.
09.30 to 10.00 – entry
10.00 to 12.00 – demonstration
12.00 to 15.30 – paint together session
We set ourselves up in a circle in the hall to paint. Each person will be provided with a table. You will need to bring your own easel, materials, cool drinks/flask and packed lunch. You can either try what has just been demonstrated or carry on with what you are already busy with. (Brush or any other clean up and disposal of any chemicals is strictly prohibited, so please remember to account for this in how you pack your materials)
It would be lovely if you can attend the whole day, but should you not be able to do so, then the end of the demonstration at 12.00 will provide a point for you to leave or to join in for the painting session. The cost will remain the same whether you stay the whole day or choose to join for just one half.
Please join us at the Paint and Palette Group at the Edenvale Community Centre (corner of Van Riebeeck Avenue and 2nd Street) at 9.30 for 10:00. Entrance fee is R50 for visitors and R20 for members.
The subscription for the year remains the same, but we offer a pro-rata amount this year of R140 rather than the regular R170. Please pay your subscription via EFT (reference your name) to facilitate a speedy entry. If this is not possible then the card facility will be available at the entrance. If you do pay via EFT, please bring your proof with you or sms it to me.
