THE BETTWS TRIANGLE
Free Music and Arts Festival, Bettws Y Crwyn.
17th , 18th, 19th June 2022 ~ 11.00 to 5.00

I am so excited to tell you about the arts and music festival that we are holding here in Bettws-y-crwyn next month. Building on the success of last year’s music and arts festival in the hills at Black Mountain Chapel, Bettws y crwyn, we are holding another festival this year. We have called it the Bettws Triangle, but we promise you will not disappear! This time there are three venues, Black Mountain Chapel, (SY7 8PJ), St Mary’s Church, (LD7 1UD) and Moor Hall Studio, (SY7 8PH) each hosting an array of top musicians and community choirs over three days, all complemented by an exhibition of watercolours by Josie Crompton-Morris at Black Mountain Chapel and my art students work (Moor Art 1 and 2) at Moor Hall Studio.
 
There will be a fantastic line up of musicians and singing groups including, Lisa Beznosiuk, Richard Tunnicliffe, John Kirkpatrick MBE, Benji Kirkpatrick, Sue Harris, Polly Bolton, BouZaTina, David Reynolds, Sue Arnaboldi, Rapsquillion, Men From Off, John Hymas with the Presteigne Pop Choir, Castle Voices, Castle Carols and Clunsing.
There will be two performances each afternoon at each of the three venues. 
 
Come along to experience the creative life in Bettws-y-crwyn. Bring a picnic lunch and enjoy the uplifting, stirring and often ‘fun’ music in this glorious countryside, Bring your boots and enjoy a walk along the quiet lanes between the three venues?

Current On-Line Drawing Course
I said I would be back with more work to show from my on-line drawing course 'From Drawing to Cubism' and here I am with some wonderful results.

The first set of drawings and colour studies came from an exercise that I set the students. The second set are of drawings and designs, are the students own studies, where they have put into practise all that they learnt on the course, using their own artefacts and objects. This helps to make the work more personal and meaningful.
Here you can see how the students have used their own objects in the designs
Charcoal Study
Pastel Study
Fabric and Stitch
Great work from some great students.

Landmarks ~ Recording 'Place'
A great course for those that care for nature and the environment, delivered by a very knowledgeable tutor.

This course aims to open our eyes to what is around us, finding the potential in the ordinary. With a focus on objects and marks collected on short walks from the studio we will explore various different techniques, making use of what we find.

Explore a range of different methods to record experience of landscape, engaging with the detail of what you find around you. Through a range of techniques including mark making, rust printing, mono-printing and botanical contact printing you will explore different ways to respond to your ‘collections’ and use them as a basis for artists books and samples, forming a personal record of your experience.

PLEASE BOOK HERE
That's all for now, but I do hope to get some bookings on these three great face to face courses.
I will be back with news next time of new on-line course, by meanwhile keep on checking my WEBSITE
Please also look at my WEBSITE for ALL short courses, on-line courses and self-study opportunities.
I look forward to welcoming you to
Moor Hall this year.
