The aim of the group is to develop our skills and knowledge in drawing and painting, from the total beginner to the more experienced, using various mediums in an atmosphere of mutual help and encouragement. Above all, we intend to have fun!

The Painting Group meets in the Scout and Guide Headquarters in Matlock Green every Wednesday from 10.00 a.m. to 12 noon.

There is a charge of £1.50 per member per week to cover the cost of room hire and refreshments.

The groups' coordinator is Gill Oldroyd, who can be contacted by email by clicking on her name.

Each month we have a different "theme" whereby members can work on a painting - either at home or in class. On one of the monthly sessions we have a mini-workshop.
