Watercolour Group

Group Leader Chris Ollerenshaw (01202 813558)

At :The Hub


Thursday 2.00pm – 4.00 pm


Explore and expand your abilities and techniques in this medium.  This is a very enthusiastic group of about 20.  We all get on well together and offer encouragement to all and inspiration.  If we do get full we operate a wait list.  Please telephone me to discuss this. 

I joined U3A about 3 years ago and have not looked back.  I belong to the Monday Art Group which covers all mediums and take part in the Card Making group.  My passion though is watercolour which I thoroughly enjoy. 

I was asked by Chris Harris take over the running of this Group as Norah Cowell who had been running it for a number of years was unable to carry on with this due to health problems. It is a real honour to be asked and I thoroughly look forward to helping.  Norah  will be missed by all of us and I hope I will be able to give everyone the attention and inspiration they require.  I have only been painting for about 3 years (when I retired), but I have learnt a lot in that time, but still plenty to learn!  I really love painting landscapes and flowers.

The atmosphere in the group is very friendly and relaxed and people do enjoy their afternoons. I will bring along some ideas, plus DVD’s and some books which can be borrowed.
