We are a fairly new club only starting in Sept. 2011 but what we lack in age we make up for in enthusiasm. Our two founding members, Carole and Paula, who started this pleasant and friendly club, guide us expertly through a wide range of media with positive and supportive encouragement. Most members have especially learnt a great deal from their skills and knowledge of pastels, but they have also challenged us with oils and acrylics. However, everyone has an input, frequently guiding each other and exchanging very helpful ideas - and having a good laugh too!
We have already held two exhibitions at our club venue, and are planning two others locally.
We are a strongly co-operative club so any monies in hand after paying room rental fees are spent on invitations for tutorials and demonstrations from visiting professional artists. We also have the opportunity to attend a nearby club on a friendly basis, or just to participate when they book a visiting artist.
We pay just £3.00 a session.
The sessions take place on Friday mornings from 10a.m. until 1p.m.
Tea and coffee are at hand!
New members are always welcome so please do feel free to contact us at;
