Pictures can be in any medium but must be not be larger than 120 cm x 150 cm when framed (canvases do not need to be framed). We would like ALL members of the club to bring along one picture on Wednesday 2nd and Thursday3rd March. The 5 pictures will be selected by our two Tutors Caroline and Lucy. If we are successful we have to send the pictures to Patchings by the end of May. Pictures will be returned after the 12th June.
