All are welcome whatever your experiences with painting. If you have never tried painting before come and give it a go. Fun without exams!

Scout & Guide HQ
2nd and 4th Fridays of the month
2.00 - 4.00 pm
  • Leader: Eileen Thistlethwaite - 01695 571100
  • Coordinator: Ann Wallbank - 01695 574620

We are a self-help group who support and encourage each other, and have purchased a selection of materials for your use to try different techniques. Occasionally, we have tutors and demonstrations, and sometimes exhibit our work at various locations around the local area.

We also have opportunities to explore digital painting on iPads – if you would like to try this method of art making.

Please come along and join us. You will be most welcome – maybe even inspired?

Please note – there will be no painting group on Friday, February 14.  Meetings will continue on Friday, February 28 and continue thereafter every 2nd and 4th Friday of month.

Bill Soens has produced a video of some of the recent works – watch it here.
