Wednesday Afternoons

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.

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 £6 in the morning, and just £3 in the afternoon.

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.

We will now have costume on the third Thursday every month. Once again it will be the same pose all day.
