Monday Morning Art Group

We are a small group of mainly watercolour artists. Some of us do use other mediums such as oils, acrylics, pastels pencils inks etc. The subjects are quite varied from landscapes to sill life, portraits to animals and much more.

We have about 15 members with an average of 8-10 attending. Our meetings are in the small hall from 9.30 - 12.30. The cost is £3 which includes tea or coffee and biscuits.

The group is very informal with no lessons or instructors. The emphasis is on painting for pleasure and fun, with plenty of chatter. New members are very welcome whether experienced or beginners. It doesn't matter if you have never drawn or painted before there is always help and advice available. We learn from one another and there is a selection of books , magazines and videos on drawing and painting available to borrow. There is also a good selection of materials which can be used.

Occasionally we have demonstrations on various painting techniques. Throughout the summer we arrange weekly trips to local beauty spots and places of interest.

Anyone interested in joining is welcome to just turn up on a Monday morning. If you would like further information please contact me:-
