Antarctica Lecture at Tavistock Group of Artists by Rita Smith

17Feb10

Last Monday, Tavistock Group of Artists had Rita Smith join us to give a lecture about painting in Antarctica. I have to say it was truely facinating! I couldn’t believe what wonderful opportunities are out there. Rita was asked to be the onboard artist of a cruise ship which went to Antartica. She taught students every day but the amazing part was the series of magnificent watercolours she created on her return. I never realised the amount of depth and colour snow could have!!!

You can see her artwork on the site Drawn to the Valley or here http://www.ritasmith.org.uk/

Amazing and inspiring stuff. There’s a world out there!
