Don't be put off from doing art!

Many people who would like to take up art, put it off, believing they 'aren't good enough'!

That's why you need a structured art course, so that you learn from the very basics, starting with the drawing process before moving on to the painting process and more...

Classes are structured…

Members also enjoy social occasions.

To further your art experience, we enjoy visits to galleries for special lectures.

Being so close to Liverpool, we take advantage of what's on offer, especially at both the Walker art gallery and the Tate, Liverpool. These visits usually sparks new inspiration to members.

Opportunities to exhibit your work!

Our next art exhibition, a wide range of subjects, will be over the May bank holiday, Saturday May 4th, Sunday 5th & Monday 6th. If interested in finding out more about taking up art, come along and talk to members, who joined as absolute beginners!

We have several exhibitions each year.

As a member, you will have the opportunity to exhibit your work!

When you first join the class, you will not be expecting the public to like your work, but after learning the basics, around 5 months, you will be ready to exhibit either drawings or paintings. Remember, you can never predict what the public like when it comes to art!





Why not come and visit our next exhibition, coming up in October 2023, 21st & 22nd?
