Something to chew on:

We would appreciate if you can take care of your RSVP's and manage them actively. There will be enough info in the meetup details to know what to expect. To RSVP Yes for a meetup and not attend the event will result in a no-show next to your name. We use this to see which members are dependable when it comes to booking venues. Those who manage their profiles will get preference.

ABOUT MAGDA:
I am a contemporary artist for 15 years plus and would love to use this opportunity to guide you during your creative processes. We will be a small group of 3 students to keep it intimate and enjoyable.

MORE ABOUT THIS EVENT:
Beginners and all levels are welcome. If you wish to learn to draw, I will start you off with drawing exercises.

If you are already confident with drawing, you can bring along any artwork you are already working on, if any. If you are not busy with an artwork yet, I have plenty of reference material for you to choose from.

If you wish to work with Oil Paint, Acrylic, Pastel, Color Pencil or Graphite Pencil, you can expect to find all tools and materials supplied for your use during these sessions. You would have to bring along any other mediums/tools you may wish to work with.

If you prefer to wear an apron, you may of course bring along one :)

If you have RSVP'd and find that you cannot attend, please remove your RSVP to give someone else a chance to fill your spot.

NOTE: We own a cat, so come prepared with allergy meds if you need it :)

TESTIMONIALS:
"Was a great 2 hours. Magda is incredibly knowledgeable in art and really creates a warm and welcoming environment that is conducive to being relaxed. Loved it and will be back!" - Comment added on LPT event date: 10 August 2019

"I loved my painting session with Magda. She is a lovely, sweet, & very patient person. She taught me so many useful tips, such as how to use my brushes for special effects, how to mix paints, how to apply colour, & so on. I wish I had met her before!
Thank you Magda, & I look forward to seeing you as soon as I have another gap! Helena :)" - Comment added on LPT event date: 30 November 2019

"I enjoyed the first class on the 3rd August with Magda so much I immediately joined for more classes. The individual attention, helpfulness and warmth in Magda's approach helps overcome my nervousness about painting and fuels my need to progress. I highly recommend the class for all levels of students." - Comment added on LPT event date: 10 August 2019

ONLINE Johannesburg Silent Book Club

Online event

In line with the times, the Silent Book Club moves online, from the comfort of your own home. Bring a book, connect with other book lovers, read, bring your own glass of wine and repeat.

How it works: Often with traditional book clubs there's the scramble to finish the assigned book, and the pressure to have something smart to say. Wouldn't it be great to have a book club where you could just enjoy books, friends, and wine—without any homework?

Silent Book club online is about connecting with other like-minded readers, learning about what other people are reading and taking time to just read and connect from the comfort of our home.

A zoom meeting link and password will be provided to the attendees.

Silent Book Club is an international organization and this is the Johannesburg chapter. Learn more at the Silent Book Club website: https://silentbook.club/
