Meeting Postponed

15/3/20 Due to the news surrounding the Coronavirus in the UK the committee have taken the decision to postpone tomorrow's clubnight. A decision about the rest of the meetings and the summer programme will be made shortly. Any postponed meetings will be rearranged later in the year. Keep painting, stay safe and look after yourselves.

January 2020. 

We hope you've all had a refreshing break and are excited for the New Year. Our first meeting of the year was Jan 6th. Many thanks to Jean Briers for her watercolour demonstration. Check out the lovely work of this canine and landscape artist at https://www.briersart.com/  

Our first clubnight of the year is Monday 20th January, 7-9pm at Fairfield Old School. Don't forget your 'eyes' related work for the mini challenge  if you've had the chance. As usual, join in with the theme of the night or bring along something of your own to work on.  Arty company and tea and biscuits provided (donations pot).

Subs for 2020 are now due. Please pay at your first visit of the New Year. (Subs unchanged at £25)
