Learning by Art: u3a Havant

We are a small, friendly group of u3a Havant members who enjoy creating art; a sociable group of mixed abilities where everyone works on their own projects and at their own pace.  There is no formal instruction, but an opportunity to learn from each other through discussion, sharing ideas and skills.
Whether you draw with graphite, charcoal, pastels or coloured pencils or paint with watercolours, oils, acrylics or even paint by numbers or use adult colouring books, you will be welcome.  Bring along all your own materials and if we can keep works to a maximum size of A3, that will help with getting along with your neighbours.
We produce a monthly newsletter and organise a few outings to exhibitions and art trails, plus some visits where we can work outdoors.
We meet at The Pallant in the Garden Room on the first and third Tuesday of each month from 10am to 12noon.  For further information or details on how to join, please contact Nigel Gossop on 023 9237 5594 or email:
