Peninsula Arts Closed for 4 weeks

Due to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, the executive of the Peninsula Arts Society committee has taken proactive, precautionary steps to protect the health and well-being of its members.

Medical advice is that social distancing is warranted in the circumstances and as a consequence the Peninsula Arts Society will close for 4 weeks from Monday 16th March. All classes, workshops, demos and other activities will cease during this period.

We thank you for your understanding.

Image: Detail from a demo painting in water based media by Catherine Lawlor. Several water based colours were applied to a large sheet of paper laid on the floor, then sprayed with water to encourage the colours to merge. Catherine moved the paper around to direct the flow. When the background was dry she worked into the shapes created by the mingling colours using an exciting combination of marks, textures and overlaid colour.
