The first of this year's self help sessions took place at St Andrew's Church Hall in Bishopsthorpe this afternoon. 21 members attended making this a successful start to 2015.
The self help group has gone from strength to strength in recent years. Of all the Society's activities, this is probably the purest expression of our original mandate - "to promote art in Yorkshire and beyond". There's a wide range of skill levels among the regulars and they work in many different styles and mediums. This means anyone who attends can probably learn something but also share their own insights. It's a friendly, relaxed and mutually supportive atmosphere and a great opportunity for new members wishing to meet other artists.
The next Self Help meeting is on 21st.March between 10am and 4pm. Everyone welcome. The cost is £6 to cover rental of the hall and you're advised to bring along a packed lunch.
