Minutes of Art Appreciation grou+p meeting on 4 December 2017
Rather than some form of formal minutes, I propose to simply document the proceedings to maintain a record, and to update members who didn't or couldn't attend of matters discussed and ideas for the future Please note that as with all U3a groups, the members are the meeting, and if you wish to see changes, or different matters put forward, please contact the writer, or attend the group meetings We have agreed that the first 2018 meeting will be held at 15A Main Street in Cranswick, at 2pm, on Monday 15 January This is an attempt to contain costs, and there we have the facility of DVD visual display on my sitting room television.
Six members attended on 4 December, and unfortunately the magic tricks could not be performed, the meeting therefore centred on discussions about what Art Appreciation is, members explained some of their experiences, particularly the cave paintings in France, and also expressed an interest in the "pre Raphaelite movement". Again the leader was admonished on his description that little is known of art in the era 500AD, to 1300AD. (that's what I've read - oops wrong again) One member volunteered to research, as will I, this era in more detail, and feed back when we meet again After a quite long session of gathering information we settled down to tea (and in some cases stronger brew) with nibbles and meringues to slowly start the Christmas festivities in a splendid low key manner One other matter put forward is that Hilary will arrange a visit to Warter (spelling corrected after my last mistake) for an early August meeting to look at the stained glass etc. In August we should have little car parking problems as the school car parking should be available. Hopefully Hilary can confirm soon and we can enter the date into our diaries. 2018 meetings after the January date will revert to the first Monday in the month unless members have a good reason to change this. In closing, everyone wished the Driffield U3A as a whole, a Merry Christmas, and a safe and Happy New Year
Art Appreciation is the feelings and understanding that you get in the presence of all kinds of art.
