STAG ( South Tipperary Art Group) News 31.10.17

by admin on 31/10/2017

Junior STAG : Over the last two weeks  the Primary Art Section ( 9 yrs. to 6th Class)were as busy as bees making all their models for Halloween with  Elke and finishing their folder work with Julie.

The Senior Section (1st yr. to Leaving Cert.)with help from Frances, Audrey, Lesley, Bobby and Maureen ( Adult STAG ) spent hours painting the 16 Pumpkin faces on the 4ft Medite board circles cut out by Michael Conroy. After varnishing, these faces were put on the ends of bales of hay which took tremendous effort from Michael as the hay is so densely packed! The Scarecrows and Ghost  were made by Kathryn and Maureen ( Adult STAG ) with great assistance from Andy Griffin and his German students and leaders from EIL. Congratulations to all who participated and assisted in any way and to Carol from the Council  for her great patience and  the Council men, second  to none , who put up our  Halloween  models on the Festival Roundabout at Tesco on the By Pass –  A sight  not to be missed and well photographed by all and sundry at this stage –  all efforts  much appreciated by  the South Tipperary Art Group, STAG !  

Please note : Junior STAG members have NO ART on this coming Saturday 4th Nov.

 A new 6 week Art session commences  on Saturday 11th November up to Sat. 16th December for both the Primary Group (9years to 6th Class ) and the Seniors( 1st year up to Leaving Certs.) To book a place as a new member  contact the Organiser  at 0868096823.
