About the group

We paint indoors until May and in the summer months go outdoors looking for some interesting venues.  We have mixed levels of creativity and beginners are always welcomed.  We paint using various media, e.g. watercolour, pen or pencil, acrylic, Chinese Painting, and others, and a variety of subjects.  Subjects are chosen on the day by each individual or brought by them to the meetings.  Some will paint what they see and others will paint copies – the choice is theirs.  Finally, over coffee, we discuss any issues we have encountered with our paintings and share tips.

2022

We won’t meet on Easter Monday, 18th April. The first two meetings, on 25th April and 2nd May at 10.00, will be at the wetlands opposite Tesco. Future venues yet to be decided.
