It’s the summer! (it is honest)
Lots of lovely sunshine, lots of light, lots of colours and smells to stimulate the senses. Let’s celebrate.
The Team at NDA have organised two events for August including the ever popular plein air meet, which this month will be in Bideford and the annual NDA Summer Picnic, which this year is being held at Tea on the Taw cafe in Barnstaple’s Strand.
August plein air meet
Our next plein air meet will take place in the wonderful ‘little white town‘ of Bideford.
It will be an opportunity to meet, draw and paint, and also visit the Whobidarts Summer Exhibition.
We will be meeting at the Burton Art Gallery for coffee at 10.30 then pulling out our pencils to draw the wonderful architecture of the little town or the picturesque quay side.
NDA Annual Summer Picnic
This year we will be meeting for a cream tea (or more) at Tea by the Taw on the banks of the River Taw in Barnstaple.
We have arranged for a discounted price with Tea by the Taw for NDA members. Please book in advance with the cafe by calling 01271 370032 and quoting North Devon Arts.
A 1/2 Cream Tea consists of a large scone, jam and cream with tea or coffee for £5.95
If that’s not enough to make you want to drag out your deck chairs and make an ice cream soda, then why not have browse through our Summer Gallery. This is a selection of artwork from the NDA gallery with a summer theme or vibe about it.
Not particularly summery, but its probably also worth mentioning that the NDA art exhibition at Barnstaple hospital will be available to view all the way throughout August.
Sun block or umbrella, bikini or pack-a-mack, we hope you all have a lovely summer.
