|Fairford Art Society||
Welcome to the Fairford Art Society (FAS)
We are a group of enthusiastic leisure painters who meet every month to share ideas, techniques and motivation. The society has been active now for over 35 years, so has many years of experience behind it. Besides our monthly meetings we have social occasions and annual exhibitions.
Where do we meet?
The Fairford Community Centre, High Street, Fairford, Gloucestershire.
The society has a membership of about 35 living in Fairford and the surrounding area.
At the beginning of May members enjoyed a demonstration of flower painting with Sue Pollard which fitted in well as those who attend the afternoon workshops had been painting Spring flowers the previous week.
A busy time in April
Members have been exploring the potential of watercolour this month, firstly at a well attended Thursday evening session trying out experimental methods of creating colour and texture.
followed by a Saturday workshop with Paul Arnott
as well as lively afternoon painting sessions led by Sallie and Wendy
Exhibition in Fairford
There was also a small but successful exhibition in September as part of the Fairford Church Flower and Art Festival.
