Stainbeck Arts Club has reopened

We are happy to say that we have resumed face to face meetings.

We are very aware of the risks of group meetings and do not want to put anyone at risk of contracting Covid-19, so we will follow the church guidelines for users of the building:
• We will use the upstairs hall and tables for more space.
• We are encouraged to scan the QR code at the entrance and use hand sanitiser when entering the building.
• We will keep a list of attendees and phone numbers for Test and Trace. This will be kept for 3 weeks then destroyed.
• The kitchens and toilets will be available for use.
• We will clean all handles, handrails, toilet area, tables after meetings.
• We will open windows to improve ventilation.
• We are encouraged to wear face coverings.
• We will not be serving refreshments, so you may wish to bring your own.

At our meeting on 12 October, Tracey Krupianka created a vibrant scene in acrylics, and then shared her techniques for leaves, flowers and underwater plants on black paper.

Our meetings include demonstrations by talented artists. Recent examples include Charles Kelly, demonstrating the use of watercolours to paint a standing curlew and a sleeping fox, and Terry Chipp who used textured acrylics to create images of wooden panels.

Our annual exhibition is held in the Methodist Church during the Chapel Allerton Arts Festival each year usually the Saturday after August Bank Holiday.
