Great Bourton Art Group
We are a like-minded group of local people who meet every Monday morning from 10 am until 1 pm in the Great Bourton Village Hall, tutored by Barry Whitehouse, proprietor of The Artery in Parsons Street, Banbury.
The friendly group caters for all abilities and has a varied programme offering classes in different media such as watercolour, acrylics and pen and ink. Barry, who has many years experience of teaching and demonstrating all art media as well as art history, gives a demonstration of about half an hour at the beginning of each class, and then members may choose whether to try their own version of the demonstration or to work on their own art – either way, Barry is there with help and guidance as required. Subjects are varied and wide ranging from drawing, birds and animals, landscapes to portraits, in a sociable atmosphere of encouragement and good humour.
