We are extremely lucky at Dupont to have two very experienced and talented Tutors – Lucy Parker and Caroline Marsland.
Caroline is our Tutor for Wednesday afternoons and Lucy and Caroline are responsible for alternate Thursday sessions. Caroline Marsland continues to run special sessions on alternate Wednesdays.
From time to time Lucy Parker and Caroline Marsland run workshops on a Thursday. Information is posted on the club notice board. As usual, still life facilities are provided for members who don’t wish to join the workshops.
Wednesday Afternoons: (instructor: Caroline)
There will be live models periodically through out the above schedule which will be updated on the web site and on the bulletin board at Ventnor hall.
Thursday Sessions –
These sessions alternate between the two instructors. There are occasional special sessions which will be posted as they occur. From time to time Caroline will start her Thursday session with a short demonstration of some aspect of life drawing/painting. There is also a still life for members at each session
SUPER THURSDAYS AT DUPONT
WHY NOT SPEND THE WHOLE DAY AT DUPONT?
STAY ALL DAY THURSDAY
If you decide to stay all day on a Thursday you will pay the normal fee of £5 in the morning, and just £3 in the afternoon. If you use the model the £3 per session will still apply.
ALL DAY POSE
On the first Thursday of every month we will have an all day pose. This will enable you to paint in acrylics or oils as well as watercolour. Still life will still be available and of course you can work on your own.
COSTUME – ALL DAY POSE
We will now have costume on the third Thursday every month. Once again it will be the same pose all day.

DUPONT’S ANNUAL EXHIBITION
The exhibition will run from 14th – 17th August inclusive. Relevant forms and information will be available closer to that date. Now is the time to start the entries!
This year the Committee has decided, due to low attendances in past summers, that the club will take a two-week holiday from 19th August (after the exhibition) to Wednesday 3rd September. This will be the start of the new club membership year, and subscriptions will be due from then.
DUPONT ART CLUB ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING
The AGM will be held at Ventnor Hall on Thursday 22nd August at 1.p.m. The agenda will be sent out beforehand.
