New U3A Art Group painting on display at the Hub
The Hungerford U3A Art Group took on a self-imposed challenge which they called “The Collage Project”.
Firstly a photograph of a local scene was cut into 25 small, match-box size, pieces. Then members took one of these pieces and had to recreate the image thereon as an A4 size water colour painting. They were not shown the whole picture, only seeing the small piece they had taken and did not see progress of “The Collage Project”, only the result when all 25 sections had been completed. Most members painted more than one piece.
The resulting Collage , which is a picture of “St. Lawrence Church from the Swing Bridge” is now on display above the books at The Hub!
