Art Group

Do you enjoy drawing, painting, sculpting? Did you do it years ago but gave up as you didn’t have the time, or the space? Would you like to spend a couple of mornings a month doing your artistic thing?  If any of the above rings a bell, or if you have always wanted to have a go but didn’t know where to start, then the Art Group is for you.  A friendly group of daubers, with no pretentions to be a new Van Gogh or even produce anything you would show your nearest and dearest, would welcome you with joy.

Talent and expertize are optional extras to the main aim, which is to have fun.  Meetings are on Thursday mornings from 9.45 to 11.45 on dates in the “What’s on” page.

And now our meetings are even more interesting.  Our minister, Tim, was on sabbatical for three months looking at Spirituality in Art. As a result we have created some wonderful items, some of which are shown here.
