The Wallsworth Art Group meets twice a month to enjoy a programme of evening demonstrations, films, talks, practical art workshops and other events. It is open to all.
There is no selection procedure to join the group or to take part in its annual exhibition. Some members are very new to art and others have enjoyed art practice for many years. The group aims to be all-inclusive and to provide a stimulating, encouraging and non-judgemental environment where people can learn about and explore different aspects of art and art techniques.
Meetings are usually held on the first Monday and third Wednesday of the month for a 7pm start (coffee from 6.45pm). Most evenings conclude by 8.30pm.
Guests pay £3 per evening, otherwise meetings are free to members who pay an annual fee of £20 to join. Some evenings may incur a small extra charge for, for example, special materials or a model. Non-members are welcome to come to any meeting without booking.
