Every few months OCA students in the East Anglia region (we call ourselves “East Anglia Extreme”) schedule a get-together. On this occasion there was myself, two photography students and two painting students.
We were interested to hear how each other we’re getting on (three of our group are submitting for assessment this November), and shared experiences of tutor feedback.
One of the photography students had been to London Fashion Week to shoot pictures and discussed her experience. I discussed the oil painting course which I attended at the Norfolk Painting school in August, and Martin Kinnear’s exhibition “The Painted Garden”.
OCA student Veronica Worrall, my friend Ruth Seabrook and their husbands are hosting an art exhibition this November. We discussed meeting up as an OCA group to view the exhibition and to catch up on each others progress before Christmas.
We talked about the upcoming exhibition at The Sainsbury’s Centre for the visual arts and wondered whether OCA might do a study visit (or perhaps workshop)?
The painting students and myself were interested in getting together for a “plein air” oil painting session (subject to fine weather).
