Art and Drama Day 2nd August Elmswell Methodist Church Hall from Stella Davis

Please find below a description of the first Art and Drama day and attached a flyer* for the second one at the beginning of August.  Please could you bring it to the attention of any you know who may be interested in attending.  Many thanks

Nine people who enjoy drawing or painting (and a dog who liked watching!) met for the first Bury St Edmunds Methodist Circuit Art day at the end of May. We had a very companionable and easy paced time, some working on new pictures and some doing more to pictures they were already working on.  There was time to chat, paint, meet old and make new friends, and think about how “art” and “God” might fit together.  People brought their own oils, acrylics, collage, watercolour and pastel materials, but we also had a table of materials to share.   The theme that day was “All things bright and beautiful”  and we all learned something from each other’s work about God’s character and creativity.  Our two drama enthusiasts gave us some good and humorous sketches and helped things along, though I think that they might want to paint too next time!

Elmswell Methodist Church Hall turned out to be a very good venue with a garden, plenty of light and lots of space. For lunch, some brought sandwiches and others made use of the local chip shop. We had a donations pot which covered the reasonable hall costs and have been able to send the £10 surplus to Christian Aid.

The next day is Saturday 2nd August .  Refreshments available from 10.30 followed by a short worship/introduction to start us thinking,  and we finish by 4.00pm  The theme for that day is “The I AM sayings of Jesus”  please feel free to come and join us – you would be most welcome.  Further details from Stella Davis 01449 675092., Artwisestella@gmail.com .

* Note from Malcolm S – The flyer came to me sideways. To read it, in Adobe Reader, click on View, then Rotate View, then Clockwise. Alternatively pick up your screen and turn it through 90 degrees (but this may not work on a tablet or phone fitted with a gyroscope; in that case, turn yourself 90 degrees). I can only pass on attachments as I receive them …..
