City Arts Poetry Gathering
Sunday 23rd April 2017
Time: 3pm – 4.30pm
This is a very informal and friendly gathering for people who enjoy poetry, in all its forms.
There isn’t a strict format to the event – participants may share their own poetry, the work of another poet, or simply listen to the readings.
**No need to book, however, please email us for location info: firstname.lastname@example.org
Welcome to our exciting fundraising project. We began our fundraising with an exciting project: 100 Canvases 2017 a community event for all ages and abilities.
We asked the community to helps us paint, exhibit and buy 100 canvases…
The ‘100 Canvases’ process was as follows:
- Come and purchase a 30 x 30cm (12 x 12″) canvas from us for £5, on either Sat 28th or Sun 29th January
- Create your design using any medium/technique on your own time (don’t sign them on the front!) and,
- Deliver and donate your finished artwork to us, on either the Sat 11th or Sun 12th February (or by appointment with Isabel Carmona).
Collection and delivery are both from City Arts Newbury from 10 am to 2pm
- Or you can come and do the above with us, in situ on the Tuesday 14th February, at our Canvas Painting Workshop day, for the cost of the canvas (£5).
- Workshop times are either 10am-12pm or 1pm-3pm
Following the collection of the canvases, we held a Fundraising Exhibition Weekend on Sat 18th and Sun 19th February from 10am to 3pm, we displayed, for sale, all the canvases you donated and you were able to purchase any of the canvas too!
The exhibition was “blind” with no names of the artists displayed.
All proceeds of the exhibition went to the City Arts Building Renovation Fund.
We hope you enjoyed it!
We still have some canvases for sale, so get in touch and come along for a viewing.

We’re very excited to introduce, our first Art Course for Kids with Sarah Moorcroft – taking place after school, over 5 weeks during term-time.
Our beginner’s classes are suitable for children with an interest in all forms of art.
These classes provide the opportunity for students to discover their artistic talent, indulge in their passion for art and explore their creative side.
Students will be taught a variety of techniques, including painting & drawing – using various mediums, from pencil and pastels, to watercolours and mixed media.
At City Arts, we keep our classes small and this allows our students to receive 1:1 guidance and support – tailored to their needs and focused on their progress.
Age: 8+, 10+ (unsupervised)
Cost: £100 (all materials included)
To Book: email@example.com
Mondays: 1, 8, 15, 29 October & 5 November, 10am – 12.30pm
In each session we will explore one medium of drawing and painting in earnest: biro, colour pencils, watercolours, watercolour pencils, felt tip pens.
We will learn about observation, colour mixing and layering. A fun practical workshop for those who want to try various drawing
techniques and do more.
You will receive a sketchbook to collect your drawings and other
materials needed for the class.
Cost: £150 (all materials included)
