And to keep ourselves going, indoor workshops are arranged over the May to August chilly months.
This year we were privileged to host four of SA's leading artists in their fields.
In May, Derric van Rensburg gave us the benefit of his knowledge in the field of acrylics - a workshop that was well attended with many oohs and wows!
Derric's workshop was followed by watercolour Master, Wallace Hulley, whose freedom and expertise with the brush gave many food for thought.
After Gavin Collins' demo at one of our monthly meetings, there was great excitement when he agreed to give us a workshop as well.
And then, to crown a terrific year of workshops, Dale and Mel Elliott came through from their home in Villiersdorp for a workshop in oils and acrylics.
Thank you to you all. Every workshop was exceptional.
