Free A-Level Art Masterclass at Norwich Castle on Thu 6 or Fri 7 Feb, 10am-2.30pm

Norfolk Council News Feed - 5 hours 30 min ago
Norwich Castle Museum and Art Gallery

 

FREE A-LEVEL ART MASTERCLASS AT NORWICH CASTLE MUSEUM & ART GALLERY

Artist Sam Drake in response to  Spotlight: A new exhibition of Norwich Castle’s outstanding Modern and Contemporary Art collection

Thursday 6 Feb or Friday 7 Feb, 10am-2.30pm, Maximum 20 students 

In conjunction with the Spotlight exhibition (25 January - 13 December 2020), this is a chance for A-level Art students to develop their own artistic thinking, skills and techniques by working with a practising artist. Spotlight exhibition showcases Norwich Castle’s outstanding collection of Modern and Contemporary art including new acquisitions by some of the most exciting artists working today, including Oreet Ashery and Eva Rothschild.

Artist Sam Drake introduces his work as a painter, looking at what it is like to work as an artist and revealing some of his creative approaches. The masterclass aims to develop student’s ability to manipulate their own work through collaging, fragmentation and scale transformations. Students will incorporate methods observed in the Spotlight exhibition by creating a series of drawings, paintings and collages leading to a collaborative wall drawing.

Sam Drake studied Painting and Printmaking at the Glasgow School of Art and recently graduated with a Masters in Painting from the Rhode Island School of Design. He has received international attention for his works that grapple with memory and nostalgia. He won the Royal Scottish Academy’s  William Littlejohn Award in 2019. Sam has exhibited at the Royal Scottish Academy, Arusha Gallery (Edinburgh), and Monya Rowe Gallery (New York). Walking the fine line between abstraction and figurative, Sam creates haunting scenes inspired by personal and found photography. Sam now lives and works in Glasgow.

Special Offer for Burns Night this week

Thanks to everybody who came to the early bird quiz.

And thanks to everybody who has already bought a Burns Night ticket. This helps us to plan in advance, avoid over-ordering food, and as a thank you we knock money off an already stupendous deal. And we will have a curling competition and a free raffle for all eaters this year - more details below. You have until Wednesday to buy your discounted pre-booking tickets behind the bar - although you can still turn up on the night (and pay more) if you like...!

Also, Lilie Ferrari, East Enders writee and script editor will be doing this months retired members talk this Wednesday - not to be missed! More details below.

 

IMPORTANT NOTICE - TABLE TENNIS

Please note that the table tennis tables will be out of bounds this week. This is because we are having a purpose built new floor put in - as the old one was lifting and needed replacing. This is only possible because of you the members, paying your £2.50 a month - so thank you all. And of, course, as always, please support the club by signing up colleagues, friends and family. Its phenomenally good value... 

CHESS CLUB

We're also pleased to say that we will have a chess club at the club from April this year. Details will be on the website and in this email soon, so keep your eyes peeled.

QUIZ MASTERS

Our Friday Big quizzes are a bit of an institution, and are run by volunteers. It can be good fun to set and run a quiz - the secret is preparation, preparation, preparation... If you fancy having a go we have a slot in march available - and support is available for newbies. If you fancy it please email events@nccsocialclub.co.uk for details.

We're putting the finishing touches, dotting the i's and crossing the t's for this years programme of events. If you have any suggestions or feedback, please get in touch via events@nccsocialclub.co.uk

We're always keen for new members, its only £2.50 a month to join.

Friday 24th January 4.30 onwards BURNS NIGHT with free raffle and curling competition

In honour of the great man himself, we'll be providing a very canny bargain - a plate of haggis, neaps and tatties plus 2 single malts for only £6. Veggie haggis will be available. If you don't fancy the whisky then you can just pre-book the food for £2.50. This offer is for pre-book customers only, and tickets must be purchased behind the bar by the end of Wednesday 22nd January.

Food can also be ordered on the night for £3.50, and the whiskies will cost between £2 and £2.60 depending on your preference.

And if that isn't enough to tempt you, anyone having food on the night (whether pre-ordered on the night or ordered on the night will be entered into a raffle for a Scottish themed prize, so it will be a good night).

Food served 5.30 to 8pm, whisky served all night. (we also have a fully stocked bar with a great variety of other drinks including non-alcoholic drinks, tea, some lovely coffess and so on).

And also we'll be having an indoor curling competition at 8.45, with the raffle being drawn at around 10pm.

Hope to see you there. Please note pre-booked tickets must be purchased from the social club bar in person.

If you haven't been up the social club for one of our special nights, this could be a lot of fun. We welcome members and their guests, and this would be a very good value night out.

Friday 31st January 8pm start The BIG Quiz

The big quiz had a lovely break over the festive period and will be back on Friday 31st. The quiz is friendly and fun, but also competitive, and we have maximum teams of 6. The entry fee is £1 per person, and that is all given out as cash prizes to the top teams. The quiz is a much loved and popular part of the social club offering and hot food will also be available from 5pm to when the quiz starts at 8pm (last orders 7.45pm).

Friday 7th February Early Bird Quiz - featuring THE IMPOSSIBLE QUESTION 5.45 to 7pm - after work fun facts and frolics

The fun, free and totally unfettered early bird quiz returns to its native format this time - just questions, no playing cards, dice games or surveys - just some interesting trivia with a side serving of fun.

But we will have the impossible question - which is now up to £10 to spend behind the bar.

The early bird is totally free, maximum teams of five, and the winning team gets a round of drinks, the last placed team some chocolate amphibians. And one lucky person will get a chance at the impossible questions for a £10 bonus

Come along and give it a try - what'sthe worst that could happen?
