The Art Group

In normal times, the Art Group meet at the Church during term time on Tuesday mornings or afternoons, and Thursday afternoons. We arrange for a visiting artist to join us for a day at least once each term and organise sketching days and visits to art galleries.

Each summer for the last nine years the Art Group have organised an exhibition for Art Group members and local artists to exhibit their work. Summer 2020 the exhibition was held online due to the pandemic, this year the group is hoping that the exhibition will be able to return to the Church.

The members are hopeful of returning to classes at Church as the Spring months progress, but in the meantime it’s been great that they began to have Zoom sessions in January as a way of keeping motivated to carry on with their artwork. If you’d like to try a Zoom Art session, whether you’re new to art or have been drawing and painting for some time, all are welcome. Days/times for classes each week:

11 – 12pm or 2 – 3pm


2 – 3pm or 4 – 5pm

You don’t have to sign up in advance for online Art Group sessions, just contact Liz Doody the Art Tutor if you’re interested and she’ll email you a link. Cost of an Art Group Zoom session is £3, classes are pay as you go, billed at the end of half term, either pay by BACS or cheque.

If you have never used Zoom or any other online chat app – that’s fine. You can use Zoom on most computers, tablets or smartphones. Liz Doody would be happy to give you a call to talk you through how to get on to Zoom, you could have an initial Zoom meeting for you to try it out?

To book a session call Barbara Murray on 07592 881108 or email
