Dovenby WI April 2014
President Geraldine Baldwin opened the meeting and secretary Sheila Martin continued by reading the minutes of the previous meeting, which were duly accepted as correct.
Unfortunately the Cranston's visit to Penrith was cancelled to lack of numbers, and also the Ullswater trip for June was cancelled. June's meeting will be held at the school with a visiting speaker to be arranged.
Our guest speaker for May was local artist Vivenne Coleman from Mawbray. Her distinctive pencil drawings of pets are exceptionally well drawn.
She talked about her work, and how she can spend about fifty hours on commissioned pieces. Vivienne's demonstration involved audience participation! We were taken through the process of shape, lines and shading. By the end of the evening we were all accomplished artists in fence drawing and dry stone wall shading.
A vote of thanks was given to Vivienne for a very enjoyable evening.
The competition for a pencil drawing was won by Martha Robinson
The quiz was won by Geraldine Baldwin
The raffle was won by Hazel Graves
