Last month I shared my new pieces which are available from the Purbeck Artisan Yard. September has become traditionally the end to my boat season duties by the river Frome in Wareham. Recently I have sold more prints – framed and mounted versions which has been very encouraging.
In the next fortnight I will return to work alongside year 3 and 4 pupils at Swanage Primary school on Landscape art and sketching down in Swanage. This is a development of the work I did with the school back in February 2017 and I am still receiving positive feedback from that, I hope the children won’t be disappointed that the cloud suit is no longer what I tend to wear for events. I will be able to take copies of the prints produced when I last worked there.
On Saturday October 5 I get to deliver a second Art for Fun session at Swanage library, this time aimed at children. A chance to reinforce my message that we do art for our enjoyment, not to please others.
In November / December I will be exhibiting some of my work at the café at RSPB Arne as part of the ongoing linked programme with Purbeck ArtWeeks. I booked my slot almost 18 months ago.
Saturday 30 November will see me return to a beach hut on Shore Road, Swanage as part of Artisans on the Beach 2019, my third year involved in this great local event. I anticipate more drawing on my clothes and offering Art for Fun activities from my AndyKnillArt hut no. 33. The event runs through until January 2, the main focus is on weekends but as previous visitors know I shall be there most days whatever the weather.
2020 May start with involvement in delivering some other art sessions t.b.c.
Throughout all this time my work continues to be available at the Purbeck Artisan Yard in Wareham. Cards, prints and originals I share can all be ordered direct from me and card payment or bacs are available. I am hoping to see more sales of the now extended ‘Santa over Purbeck’ series and the new ‘Santa over Dorset’ series that has started this year too.
I am open to commissions – if interested please contact me directly.
Thanks for reading
