FINCHLEY ART SOCIETY
Founded in 1949
70thANNIVERSARY – NEWSLETTER 2019
Promoting art in the community
2019 is a landmark year for the Finchley Art Society. We celebrate 70 years of art in Finchley.
We have an exciting programme of events planned to celebrate this wonderful achievement.
In addition to our normal activities there will be gallery visits, children’s art workshops, fund-raising events, a cheese and wine painting party, and an anniversary party.
We hope to introduce smaller venues with pop-up displays of featured FAS artists.
If you would like to be involved in helping organise any of the events mentioned please contact me.
If you have any anniversary fund-raising ideas that you can organise at home or locally with friends, family or any group you might be involved with, we would be delighted to hear about it. Some suggestions include coffee and crayons, wine and watercolour or Prosecco and painting. Or it could be a coffee morning and art discussion or workshop that you can host. There would be a small charge.
MONDAY EVENINGS AT TRINITY
Mondays could do with a revamp so we are planning to have models wearing interesting clothes and interesting poses so that new and existing members will enjoy the sessions more.
It would help to have better lighting so the models will have more light and shade. A lamp has been
found to help improve the pose.
It is important we promote and publicise FAS to a wider audience to increase membership.
While your committee will be recruiting new members from local art schools we need your help too.
CAN YOU FIND A NEW MEMBER?
We are setting a challenge to recruit 40 new members in 2019.
If each member introduced one friend or relative to FAS we would easily exceed our target.
Remember their first session is FREE. (Joining leaflets are available from Valerie Cowan).
We are introducing a new ‘drop in’arrangement for those new recruits who don’t want to commit
to annual membership It is £5 plus the usual session fee of £2 making a total of £7 per session.
(Full membership at only £25 per year is great value and includes exhibiting rights).
Please help us increase membership!
I hope you agree that we have an exciting year planned and we look forward to your participation
