Art Together Day Via Zoom – Theme of Light
Saturday 20th February 10am —  3.30pm 

Join us via Zoom for a day of making art. We meet 3 times during the day for short catch ups and see what everyone is up to. All members are warmly invited to attend and will be sent a Zoom invite a few days before. Non members are also welcome for a small fee of £2 . If you would like to join us, please message us here or through our Facebook page

LBAS Sketchbook Pen Pal Project
Members can participate in our latest Sketchbook project.
How this works – A group of members will have a shared physical sketchbook with a theme. The first member in each group completes the first page then posts the item to the next member who will do the same I.e. Sketch/paint then post on.
The book is posted on until there is a completed book of themed drawings.
The completed book is then returned to LBAS
All members are welcome to participate and new sketchbooks may be started at any time as soon as 4 participants are signed up. So do get in touch if you would like to join in.
 
These books don’t need to be serious or masterpieces they could be simple or silly. The theme given is only restricted by your imagination. Let’s take the theme above of Cats. You could just draw cats or you could maybe draw a scene of havoc that a cat had caused and you just see the tail/paw prints of the culprit. Or maybe think of words starting in cat like catapult, catastrophe and catnap. The theme is just a launch pad for each others imagination
