Art Appreciation


Group 1 Ann Orr

Group 2 Janet Mardle

Group 3 Peggy Hearn

Aims and Objectives of the group: To learn about all forms of Art and Artists in an informal and relaxed way, using all forms of media…often obtained from the Resource centre. There is a lot of group input and participation. We also have coach outings to galleries etc. paid for separately as extras.

Any expertise needed: Only a willingness to research and produce one’s own materials.

Equipment needed (rough costs if any): Printing, usually done on one’s own computer. Use of DVD/projection equipment, borrowed through Keith Reynolds and we own a slide projector, for our group only, courtesy of Phyllis. ( There is a U3A one lodged with Keith).


Maximum number permitted in the group: 10 – 12,each group.
