We are a small friendly Society with members of mixed ability. We aim to enjoy art and to learn more about style, technique and the use of different media through demonstrations and talks.
Membership of the Society is open to anyone, but all members should be active members of the Society. Membership is from January to December. The annual subscription is £20. Maximum number of members is 99. Names of interested applicants are put on a waiting list.
Membership enquiries may be made through our web site, or why not just come along and see us on a Wednesday afternoon or Friday evening.
Every Wednesday afternoon from 1.00 to 3.45.pm members meet at St Sebastian's Hall for our Painting Club. This is a non-tutored, "Do your own thing" session. It is a great way to get to know other people and a good incentive to work in a relaxed, light-hearted atmosphere.
Although it is non-tutored there is always help and encouragement from other members. A still life is set up by a member on the first Wednesday each month and those who wish to can take advantage of this while others continue with their own work.
Demonstrations & Workshops
In order to learn more about style, technique and the use of different media we invite practicing artists to give demonstrations. The demonstrations are open to members and non-members. These meets are usually on the 2nd and 4th Fridays of the month at St Sebastian's Memorial Hall from 7.30 to 9.30pm.
The annual programme covers a variety of subjects and is designed to cover the widest possible range of styles, media and techniques. There are also regular workshops.
Two big exhibitions are held each year. These are open to all members who have belonged to the society for at least 3 months. Paintings can be framed for hanging or mounted as portfolio paintings.

The club may also exhibit work at other sites during the year
The club aims to support members with their hobby. The club has a library of DVDs, videos and art books that are available for members to loan for a small charge. Good quality sheets of paper, D rings and cord can be purchased at cost price. Members can order art materials through the club at discount prices.
