To encourage the arts in the community and to enable and educate adult enthusiasts with affordable workshops, demonstrations and outings run by our teacher-members and local professional artists.
To provide hands-on studio experience for interested locals. By providing practical exercises in a relaxed social environment we hope to involve any enthusiastic prospects regardless of ability or previous involvement in the arts.
On the second Thursday of most months we invite a guest speaker to visit the St Andrews Church Hall to give a two-hour lecture, activity demonstration, appraisal session or method tutorial. The evenings are open to all comers but non-members must pay £5 to attend.
Among our popular Summer features are the afternoon outdoor sketching and water-colouring sessions. These give members a chance to meet casually in a local setting and commune with nature while working en plein air on whatever takes their fancy. Experienced tutors will be on hand.
