Friday Group's Life Drawing

The Friday Group's Life Drawing classes will soon be coming to an end for the season - but don't worry, they'll be back again later in the year.

There will be no class on Friday 2nd May, due to the May Fair closing the Assembly Rooms. The last class will be on 30th May.

There will soon be a list of the Friday Group's summer plein air trips - keep your eyes peeled for it!

Paint Jam

One of the events coming up at the Ludlow Fringe is the Paint Jam, bringing street art to Castle Square!

Some of these people may be familiar to you - you already know myself, Lesley and Chris Bean, then we've got Mike Flight who gave our most recent talk, and he showed us some of the work of one of his former students, Deeds.

If you want a little more information, you can listen to this: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p01wvd0k

2 hours and 16 minutes in, Ludlow Fringe Art Trail coordinator Frances Newman and I talk to BBC Radio Shropshire's Jim Hawkins about what we're organising for the Fringe. This is only up for 7 days, though!
