Drawing, painting, pastels… art for your enjoyment
The Art Group meet at the Church during term time on Tuesday mornings or afternoons, and now on Thursday afternoons as well. 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.
For the last eight years the Art Group has organised an exhibition for Art Group members and local artists to exhibit their work, Summer 2019 it will be held on Friday 5th and Saturday 6th July.
We look forward to seeing you, whether you’re new to art or have been drawing and painting for some time. All are welcome.
Tuesday morning session: 10.30 – 12.30pm
Tuesday/Thursday afternoon sessions: 1.30 – 3.30pm
Each term lasts for 12 with a mid-term break after 6 weeks with an optional outdoor activity available.
Please pay for each course at the beginning of each half term. We’re unable to make a reduction if you can’t attend a session but if you’d like to change from morning/afternoon to another session on a Tuesday or Thursday, we’re happy for you to do this.
For more details and cost, please contact Barbara Murray on 07592 881108 or email firstname.lastname@example.org

The 2018 Art Exhibition was a great success again this year, a wonderful celebration of art from our Art Group as well as from many artists in the area, over 190 pieces altogether, with 24 sales. We had so many wonderful comments about the work as well as the event as a whole.
Visitors to the exhibition were able to vote for their favourite piece of art, the winner was Valerie Kilford for her beautiful pastel painting of a black cat – Black Magic. All proceeds from the Art Exhibition, after expenses, will be donated to the Church.

A very enjoyable day out for the Art Group when they went to Manchester in February for their annual visit to an Art Gallery, this year to the Lowry in Salford Quays and also the Imperial War Museum North.
The Art Group enjoyed an inspirational extra session at the end of the Spring term, Sarah Evans, a local artist, came along to give a talk about her work and to demonstrate how to do silk painting. Everyone enjoyed meeting Sarah and spending the morning having a go with this media.
