We are all in an unprecedented time. All of our social groups, gatherings and hobbies outside our home are on temporary suspension due to the Government Lockdown.
However we cannot let our love of drawing, painting, crafts and photography diminish as a result!
It is more important than ever to keep connected these days, so why not use the power of technology to stay in touch and talk about what we love – Art!
We encourage members and friends to share your work – either completed or works in progress – to this part of our website, or our dedicated page on Facebook – Hartlepool Art Club.
Example of work sent in by Neil Brooks:
“Hello fellow art club members. I hope you are all keeping safe and taking advantage of the current situation to indulge in your passion for creating art. In these times of social distancing it is important to still socially engage as much as possible, so let’s see what everyone is working on.
To kick things off here’s one I started at the weekend. This is the acrylic under-painting which I’ll now go over in oils to add better colour definition and detail. I’m a complete novice so any tips welcomed.
Now your turn. Let’s see what everyone else has on the easel…“
