• Short Summary

    Middle-aged and elderly men and women attend an afternoon art class in Southend.

  • Description

    Southend-on-Sea, Essex.

    Various shots of middle-aged and elderly women (and a few men) in the afternoon art class for adult beginners at Southend's Municipal College. They all sit at easels and work on a still life set-up of bowls, wooden spoons and a crab. Nice shots of artists at work.

    Commentary is a bit patronising - "Down with shopping bags and up with easels is their motto!".

    Note: correspondence and news cutting on file.
