ASPIRING artists are invited to enjoy some of the most picturesque locations in Havant and East Hampshire this summer.

The Rowlands Castle painting society will hold a painting and picnic day every Tuesday throughout August.

Each week anyone from professional artists to novices are welcome to come along to the different locations, and sketch or paint the scenery and socialise with like-minded people.

Each session will start at 10am, with the location changing on a weekly basis.

The society, which boasts more than 130 members, hopes that if the weather stays bright and sunny, it will encourage more people to try their hand at something creative. For more visit
