aim4art is a voluntary community arts group, formed in 2009, dedicated to pushing the boundaries of painting and drawing in the Tees Valley. We aim to paint, aim to draw, aim to create art. We meet every Tuesday (10am-4pm) at The Barn, overlooking Hemlington Lake, Middlesbrough, TS8 9DA. We have no regular tutor, but support each other and organise a programme of visits and workshops. Visit our website at www.aim4art.org.uk
After putting our Portfolio on google photos, I would like to set up albums for individual members, which can be easily added to at any time. Pictures can be sent to me or you can upload them yourselves - I'll put together some instructions for doing this. In the meantime, Have a look at Les Southerton's new album by following the link below.
Well what a response ! Brilliant day at our art cafe.
With visitors from other art groups, our local councillor, youth project leaders, friends
and relatives all contributed to a very successful event. Bet you're all shattered now!
Well done everyone. Julia
Jane, who last visited us in 2010 , once again gave us a great insight into the way she works - a process of reflection and reduction, sometimes over a long period, which nevertheless results in an impression of great spontaneity. She asked us to think about and question our approach, particularly to composition.
Here's Gill Bradley with the sculpture she created for William Kidd of Seaton Hall
Gill and I were there with Cleveland Art Society to shown recent developments at Seaton Hall. Plans include a cafe and space for art workshops and a Nostalgia Mall with spaces to be rented at a reasonable rent by artists or art groups, photographers, antique sellers etc. There is also residential accommodation and a chance for walks through the grounds. Certainly worth looking out for.
