Dear Club Member

Welcome as ever to the latest news from the VOPAC Committee. You should have received your Membership Letter recently (if not let us know) and now we have further news of activities for you to enjoy this month, so do read on:

REMINDER: The First Zoom Demonstration is on Thurs 13th May at 7pm 

Please check your Membership Letter (26.4.21) for details of how to join in. It’s easy!

Facebook and Instagram

You can find us again on Facebook as Vale of Pickering Art Club – it’s now a ‘private’ members group so you need to ask to join. Our Instagram page is pickeringartclub if you would like to follow us.

Monthly Practicals

We still have spaces for Lynette’s Wed. 19th evening session for May and on Fri. afternoon 28th May. Spaces are limited so do contact Lesley or Lynette to book a place asap.

Monthly Challenge 

A title to guide you, an image to inspire you and a theme to ponder as an alternative. Details overleaf.

NEW! Sharing your Art News 

Perhaps you’ve been inspired lately by something you’ve seen or heard or read ? Or maybe you have experimented with a different medium? Would you like to share that artwork with the membership? Your work must be original, sent as a jpeg photograph of good quality. You can add a brief comment/explanation. (50 words max) 

Chris Pearson is leaving

us shortly for pastures new. He has been a stalwart member of VOPAC and the Committee for a number of years. His loyal support, knowledge and abilities will be missed. Thank you Chris, from all of us.


Chris Pearson’s departure leaves us with another Committee space to fill. If you would like to share ideas and join a vibrant team, please call or email us – contact details below.

Keep creating – with best wishes from your Committee.

Monthly Challenge:

1. ’Spring on your doorstep’ (photo – Cherry trees on Malton Road, Pickering )

2. Theme:

“The month of May comes differently in cities: not for us white blossom on the hedgerows, bluebells in the woods – instead the sun’s rays burnish bricks and mellow pavements; seeds burst into flower in the cracks between the stones; speedwell and bindweed bloom among the rubble.”    Heidi Thomas
