VALLEY ART GROUP    So far we have enjoyed learning how to use watercolour pencils, and practised our printmaking skills using autumn leaves that produced some really creative artwork.  This month we will be using special effects to create snow and frosty scenes. We have our last meeting on Friday, 9th December, returning to the hall on Friday, January, 13th, 2017.  This informal friendly group meets fortnightly starting at 10.00 am until 12.30 pm. If you would like to join us please contact Loraine at or phone 743577.
