Current and Past Projects

In January 2020 we found ourselves once again locked down and so the club has launched our latest group painting project – a collage of contributions that will, when brought together, create a large p;ainting of Garrowby Hill by David Hockney.

Past Projects

Summer 2020 Sketchbook Challenge

In June 2020 we began our Summer Sketchbook Project to keep members busy during the lockdown period.

Van Gogh Sunflowers – wall painting

Van Gogh Sunflowers Project

In recent years we have run an annual art club group project where members each produce part of a larger piece of work. 

We have completed some ‘wall art’ works in which our artists were challenged to produce a painted canvas based upon a small section of a well-known painting. When the individual squares were joined together, the bigger picture is revealed. Paintings have included Van Gogh’s Sunflowers, Gaugin’s Tahitian Girls and Cezanne’s Kitchen Table.

A very successful Shop Fronts project was completed with around 60 canvases of local shops displayed together as a street scene in Fareham shopping centre.

We have also produced calendars composed of seasonal and local scenes which were sold with profits donated to charity.

Fareham Art Group entered the first Art Club of the Year competition run by The Artist and Leisure Painter magazines and were one of ten shortlisted clubs whose work was displayed at the Patching’s Festival in Nottingham.
