BWS June fun day and workshop!

Come and join us on Friday June 29th for a fun and informal workshop/ day out in an idyllic setting.

Petra has once again offered her glorious garden as a venue for a fun filled couple of hours exploring the rules of composition led by Ona Kindgon and her daughter Rebecca.

  Learn about the Fibonacci Spiral, the Rule of Thirds and several more compositional aids. Try these out with support from your instructors and practice using your camera or your paintbrush/ pencil (The property is on well water, so no cadmium paints please).

Wander around Petra’s beautiful garden and mentally paint pictures with your eye as you become more familiar with the strengths of each compositional grid. Its informal, fun and there will be plenty of help and advice on hand. You will even go home with your very own compositional grids acetate sheet to help to compose future reference photos and paintings.

 There will be a small fee for the compositional workshop $5 for members $10 for members friends payable on the day (all money minus cost of materials will be going to BWS)

 Please feel free to bring a picnic lunch and spend the whole day having fun or just drop in for a couple of hours. Tea and coffee will be provided.

We have a rain date of Sunday July 1st should the weather not be suitable on Friday 29th. Please watch the blog and your e mail for any last minute changes due to weather.

 If you are planning to attend please let us know by e-mailing either Ona or Rebecca, by adding a comment to this thread or by e-mailing so we can make sure we have a grid sheet ready for each person

 We will e mail directions to all members. Any new members who wish to join in our painting day who do not receive directions please e-mail

We will be having an activity like this each month throughout the summer so please keep watching the blog for more information. We will try to vary day of the week and times of day for each activity so that all members and their friends can enjoy at least one of the activities offered throughout the summer.

Hope to see you on the 29th and remember you can bring a friend :)
Ona, Rebecca and Petra
