GRUNDY PARK FUN DAY SATURDAY 20 APRIL

On a glorious St. George's Fun Day at Grundy Park on Easter Saturday the LVAS manned a stall in order to advertise our Society to the general public.  Members demonstrated verious forms of art techniques such as painting sunflowers in acrylic, a Labrador dog in soft pastels and for the children a unique plate spinning concept and two large St. George and the Dragons to colour in with felt tip pens.  The general public were also invited to leaf through a selection of wonderful sketch books, a box of unframed paintings together with a small selection of framed paintings provided by members.
