Amber Painting Group is a group of like minded artists who meet on Friday afternoons from 13.30 to 15.30, at the Methodist Church Hall in Duffield, to support and encourage each others artistic endeavour.We are a mixed bunch of artists of all types using varied media. we have both amateurs and professionals, some who have been painting for years and some who are newcomers; all are welcome.We are not a teaching group but we do all learn from each others ideas. We have a monthly theme to stimulate ideas. We arrange demonstrations for the club and invite other local clubs about 2-3 times a year. We also arrange in-house workshops or demonstrations amongst the members. In the summer we have a cream tea and a critique afternoon. We have now been visiting one of the local Resedential Homes for the elderly and spend a coup[e of hours painting with them,approximately once a month. This has proved very popular with the residents and most enjoyable for the volunteers who have found that they learn a lot about life from the residents and we hope we have helped them in some way!
